Sloppy Joe Pasta

Sloppy Joe Pasta

1 box of Fusilli Pasta 

1 tbsp olive oil

1 cup yellow onion, diced

1 lb ground beef (we used lean)

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 tsp kosher salt

1/4 cup apple cider vinegar

2 tbsp tomato paste

2 cups beef stock 

15 oz tomato sauce

2 tbsp brown sugar

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

1 tablespoon chopped parsley

Grated cheddar cheese for garnish (4 cheese Mexican works too!)


1. In a large pot heat the olive oil and add the onions. Cook until soften for about five minutes then add the garlic and ground beef. Break it up as it cooks and add the salt and vinegar. Add the tomato paste and stir until it’s mixed completely into the beef.

2. Add the beef stock and bring it to a boil. Add the pasta (we had to press it down a little to make sure it's all covered) put the lid on and let it simmer for 10 mins, until pasta is cooked.

3. Add the tomato sauce, brown sugar, Worcestershire sauce, and parsley and stir. Bring it to a simmer and let it all cook together, stirring so it doesn’t stick to the bottom. Serve and add grated cheddar cheese or 4 cheese Mexican or aged Italian! It's super yummy either way.
