One Pot Lightnin’ Fast Dinner


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium sweet onion, diced small
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 cups Ragu Old World Style Traditional Pasta Sauce
  • 1 (10 ounce) can Hunt’s diced tomatoes with green chile peppers
  • 1 (16 ounce) can Bush’s mild chili beans, undrained
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
  • 3/4 cup Sargento shredded Cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley



Heat olive oil in a large Dutch oven or pot over medium-high heat. Add onion, garlic, and beef. Stirring frequently, cook until meat is browned and crumbly, about 3 minutes. Drain excess fat.

Stir in chicken broth, Ragu sauce, diced tomatoes with mild green chilies, beans, chili powder, and cumin. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Bring to a boil and stir in pasta; cover, reduce heat to a simmer and cook until pasta is al dente, about 14 minutes.

Remove from heat. Stir in the cheese and parsley. Serve immediately, garnished with additional cheese and parsley, if desired.
