Yes, you heard that right. This recipe does in fact contain tomatoes. I conceded for the sake of my husband and decided to finally include those pesky tomatoes in one of my recipes. Don’t worry, I made sure to pick them out of my own plate. Other than that minor detail, this recipe was actually rather tasty.
I knew I wanted to try a pasta dish with mushrooms in it, but I was on a tight schedule on this particular day. I didn’t have time to go grocery shopping, so I had to use what I had on hand. That included a can of chopped mushrooms, a can of diced tomatoes, ground beef, and onions. It was the perfect combination of ingredients. And don’t be afraid to use canned food when you’re in a hurry! If anything, it will add more flavor to the finished project and will cut your prep time in half.
If you want a thicker sauce, I would suggest adding either tomato paste, tomato sauce, or even a can of Prego if you want! You can add them directly to the skillet while you’re simmering. I decided on a lighter texture, so I opted out of using extra sauce. The butter and spices give this pasta such a savory flavor that I felt it was perfect just the way it was.
This dish is very easy to make and close to a one-skillet meal. So, if you’re looking for a quick, delicious dinner, give this meal a try tonight and let me know how it turns out in the comments below.
