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.
