Cheesy Ground Beef Pasta Skillet
2 cups chickpea pasta, cooked
1 tbs extra-virgin olive oil
1 lb ground beef
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp crushed red chili flakes – optional
1 tbs Worcestershire sauce (can sub for BBQ sauce)
2 tbs tomato paste (can sub for ketchup)
1 onion chopped
1/2 cup chopped cilantro (can use parsley) plus more for garnish
2 cups shredded mozzarella
Cook pasta according to package directions. Reserve 1/2 cup pasta water. Drain pasta without rinsing.
Meanwhile in a large skillet over high heat add 1 tablespoon olive oil and brown beef while breaking up with a wooden spoon, about 2 minutes.
Reduce heat to medium and season meat with 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon black pepper.
Next stir in garlic, onions, chili flakes (optional) Worcestershire sauce (or bbq sauce), tomato paste (or ketchup) parsley (or cilantro) and 1/2 cup pasta water.
Simmer until meat is tender, about 8 to 10 minutes.
Next add cooked pasta and 1 cup mozzarella and mix in.
Top with remaining cheese and cover with a lid (to allow cheese topping to melt).
Garish with additional parsley or cilantro – your preference.
Plate and serve.
