– 1 pound ground beef

– 8 ounces pasta (such as spaghetti, fettuccine, or penne)

– 1 can (14 ounces) crushed tomatoes

– 1 onion, finely chopped

– 2 cloves garlic, minced

– 1 carrot, grated

– 1 stalk celery, finely chopped

– 1/2 cup beef broth

– 2 tablespoons tomato paste

– 1 teaspoon dried oregano

– 1 teaspoon dried basil

– Salt and pepper, to taste

– Grated Parmesan cheese, for serving

– Fresh basil leaves, for garnish (optional)


1. Cook the pasta: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain the pasta and set aside.

2. Brown the beef: In a large skillet or Dutch oven, heat some olive oil over medium heat. Add the ground beef and cook until browned, breaking it up with a spoon as it cooks, about 5-7 minutes. Drain any excess fat if needed.

3. Add aromatics: Add the chopped onion, minced garlic, grated carrot, and chopped celery to the skillet with the browned beef. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes.

4. Make the sauce: Stir in the crushed tomatoes, beef broth, tomato paste, dried oregano, and dried basil. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Bring the mixture to a simmer.

5. Simmer the sauce: Reduce the heat to low and let the sauce simmer for about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until it thickens slightly and the flavors meld together.

6. Combine with pasta: Add the cooked pasta to the skillet with the beef ragu sauce. Toss everything together until the pasta is well coated in the sauce and heated through.

7. Serve: Divide the beef ragu pasta among serving plates. Garnish with grated Parmesan cheese and fresh basil leaves if desired. Serve hot and enjoy!
