Happy New Year! Here's a delicious start.

Hoping 2013 is wonderful. My resolution is to post regularly. I'm happy to say goodbye to 2012. It wasn't a bad year - just a year I watched go by. So to prevent the same old I want to bring a bit of pizazz to this year. Tonight starts 2013 with a super yummy classic pasta. Enjoy!

Brown 1.25 pounds of organic sirloin & set aside.
In the same sauce pan sauté an onion until translucent.
Mix in 1/4 cup tomato paste & brown for a minute.
Add 10 cloves chopped garlic stirring for 1 minute.
Stir in 1 large large can crushed tomatoes along with water of equal proportion.
Stir back beef
Toss in 1/8 cup oregano & basil.
Simmer for an hour or two.

I add salt, black pepper & red pepper to each stage & finish with fresh chopped parsley, butter & Parmesan.


  1. I am hoping that 2013 is good for you and your family. We started the year rather flat, but we got through tough times. About the recipe, I'll add them to my quick and easy meals list, with due credit to you ofcourse.

  2. Your New Year surely started with a delicious treat. I would like to try cooking something new for that day but I didn't not succeed perhaps some other time, or I'll just try this one for the next occasion.

  3. Judging by its look. It would not think that this dish would be on the healthy side. When I read this, I was surprised that this dish that looks good, has ingredients of vegetables and a lean part of beef.

  4. Wow, this is classic. Thanks! We cooked this in our rv during our road trip, and let me tell 'ya, it's a delicious snack specially when you're enjoying the sites! So, thanks again!

  5. This looks delicious! But I'm just wondering doesn't it taste weird when you put oregano in it? I'm just curious cause I don't get what's the purpose of oregano in every pasta-related recipes.

  6. This will be first on my list when we finish renovating our kitchen! I can’t wait for it to be fully finished so that I can already try this recipe.
