If you’ve tried and enjoyed my Creamy Beef and Shells or my Homemade Hamburger Helper, there’s a good chance you will enjoy this ground beef pasta. This recipe is sorta like a quick bolognese sauce. Ground beef, onions, garlic, and a creamy tomato sauce make one comforting dinner. As a kid, spaghetti with meat sauce was always one of my favorite comfort foods, and as an adult I’ve always keep some variation of this sauce in my freezer. I’m excited to introduce this version to my website!

I chose penne for the photos, but this recipe will work with whatever your favorite pasta shape is/what you’ve got on hand. It’s the perfect quick family meal!

This recipe is easy! You start by sautéing the onion for a few minutes, and then you add in the beef & garlic and break it up with your spoon, cooking it until it’s browned. You then add in the canned tomatoes, tomato paste, Dijon mustard (optional but recommended for building layers of flavor), and Italian seasoning. Let it cook down for a few minutes, then stir in the cream and let it cook a little longer. Toss with the pasta and serve. I like to grate on some parm cheese. Obviously. So easy and so good. (Full ingredients and instructions are in the recipe card below).

Recipe notes & tips:

  • This recipe freezes well. You can always make a batch of sauce ahead of time (even double it), and it’s easy to pull an individual portion out of the freezer for a quick dinner.
  • I like to use the leanest ground beef I can find. It saves you from having to drain out the fat.
  • As with any cream-based recipe (especially with an acidic tomato sauce), subbing the cream with something else can lead to curdling, so keep that in mind.
  • I know some people don’t like chunks/pieces of tomatoes, so feel free to swap the diced tomatoes with tomato sauce if you wish. Or use petite diced toms.
  • Try stirring in 1/2 cup of cheddar cheese if you want this dish to be cheesy.
  • I found this to have plenty of sauce, but if you want to add more, go up to a full cup of cream.
  • Fresh basil would be a great addition to this pasta sauce (add it in right at the end) if you happen to have some.
