Lately I am finding myself in an ongoing battle to get my son to eat something other than fruit and bread. Don’t get me wrong, I love that he loves fruit, but I would like him to give vegetables and proteins a try. Seriously, what kid doesn’t like noodles? During one of these battles, I remembered a recipe my mom used to make for weeknight dinners when I was growing up. It’s ridiculously easy, made all in one pot, and surprisingly good.
- 1 pound ground Beef
- 2 cups mixed vegetables, frozen
- ½ box Pasta, Uncooked Farfalle, macaroni, shells, etc.
- 4 cups Beef Broth
- 2 tbsp Dill, chopped, if using dried, cut amount in half
- Sour Cream
- French Fried Onions
- Brown beef in large sauté pan with lid.
- Mix in vegetables and pasta.
- Add broth. Mix, bring to a simmer, and cover. Let cook for about 15 minutes, or until pasta is cooked through.
- Season with salt, pepper, and dill. Serve with sour cream and onions.
It was as simple and yummy as I remember. Oh, and as for Carter? No, he wouldn’t eat this either. Back to the drawing board!
