I made this last night but modified the recipe as follows: instead of tomato juice, I used diced tomatos with the juice; I did not use the sherry; I added 1 tsp basil and and 1 tsp oregano. I mixed together a cup of Parmesan Cheese and 1/2 breadcrumbs and sprinkled it on top when the dish was finished. It made a nice topping and added extra flavor. It was delicious!-27 Mar 2003

My husband took one look and said, "Oh, we're having Hamburger Helper." Not what I want to hear when I've made something from scratch. Unfortunately, it tasted like Hamburger Helper too. The sherry gave it a little bit of an odd flavor though.-26 Mar 2002

Was looking for something to make when i was almost completely out of groceries. SO mine got made with 8oz of tomato paste and just the 1 cup of water needed to melt the bouillon cubes. I did have sherry but had to use celery seed, instead of celery salt and real mayonnaise instead of sour cream.....surprisingly it was quite good....texture was nice and thik and the whole family gobbled it down...Dont get me wrong, i wouldnt fix it for company but it was very nice alternative for low grocery day.-31 Jul 2006


Tomato Beef Pasta

This Tomato Beef Pasta recipe is a super easy, family favorite dinner recipe… and it has a secret ingredient that you might not expect! Watch the video showing you how to make this recipe, then scroll to the bottom of this post and print out the recipe so you can make it at home.

I first made this recipe for my family back in 2007. My son was just six years old (time flies as he’s 17 now!) I was a teacher back then, and I was always looking for things to make for dinner that didn’t take a lot of time or ingredients. Since pasta is frequently requested as a dinner choice in my house, it’s nice to have some new ideas. This Tomato Beef Pasta was a big hit with my guys, and I found that it was indeed very easy to make. It’s been a repeat recipe in my house for 12 years now!

Don’t take my word for it, grab your skillet and try this recipe! It’s quick, easy and delicious. Who doesn’t have 30 minutes to make a meal? Ok, most moms… I get it, but it is a healthier option than take out or fast food and tastes better.


  • 1 pound 90% or higher lean ground beef
  • ¾ cup onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 (14.5 ounce) cans no-salt-added diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 (6 ounce) can no-salt-added tomato paste
  • 3 anchovy fillets, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano, crushed
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 8 ounces dried multigrain penne pasta (about 2 1/2 cups)
  • ¼ cup Kalamata olives, chopped
  • ¼ cup snipped fresh parsley
  • 1 Snipped fresh parsley

In a large nonstick skillet cook ground beef, onion and garlic over medium heat until meat browns and onion is tender. Drain off fat and discard.

In a 3 1/2- or 4-quart slow cooker combine beef mixture, tomatoes, tomato paste, anchovies, oregano and crushed red pepper. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 4 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2 to 3 hours. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions drain.

Before serving, stir olives and 1/4 cup parsley into slow cooker. Serve beef mixture over hot cooked pasta. If desired, garnish with additional snipped fresh parsley.

Tip: For easy cleanup, line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.


Can You Freeze Instant Pot Beef and Pasta?

Yes! It can be frozen after it’s been cooked for up to 3 months.

I freeze them in individual meal prep containers so they’re pre-portioned for when I’m craving them.

I use these airtight container to store the beefaroni when meal prepping or freezing.

Thawing: remove the lid that covered the dish in the freezer. The cover might have frozen condensation, which, when melted, will drop water onto the beefaroni. Cover the pasta with a fresh lid when thawing the overnight in the fridge. Microwave to reheat.

Alternatively, thaw the frozen pasta in a cold water bath. Microwave to reheat.

One-Pot Pasta with Beef & Broccoli

This dish is perfect for back to school family dinners & there is plenty leftover for the lunchbox too! Fall can be totally crazy when we all scramble to find new routines. The lazy days of summer are over and we need to make adjustments with new schedules & commitments. I’m making things easier for you with this One-Pot Pasta with Beef & Broccoli. A delish weeknight meal that is simple to prepare & you will not have a sink full of dirty pots & pans when you are done cooking. In less than 30 minutes you can have dinner on the table. Anything to save time is a great thing!

My kids are back to school & that means I have a few more minutes in the day to prepare delicious, healthy meals. You can use mostly pantry items in this recipe, which makes it easy to shop ahead. One of the most important things in my world is to make sure I feed my family a balanced diet filled with delicious & varied ingredients. This pasta covers all bases. It’s energy packed and filled with protein & veggies.

As we plunge into a new school year (where did the summer go?!) one of my main priorities is to bring all of us healthy meal ideas that are just as great for dinner as they are in the lunch box. There’s nothing better than leftovers that can easily be transformed into a lunch for the kids. One that they will love! There’s nothing worse than when they come home with an untouched lunch. Not the case with this pasta!

I never realized that pasta can cook just as perfectly in a measured liquid as it can in a huge pot of boiling water. The flavors here are huge, as the pasta cooks itself in a broth hit up with some cream. Try it tonight & let me know what you think!
