Like many households, our family TV time is often spent watching the Food Network. One of our favorites is The Pioneer Woman with Ree Drummond. Ree lives on a ranch in Oklahoma with her husband and teenage children. When she isn’t cooking or writing her incredibly successful blog, she is home schooling her children. Man, I thought I was pretty good at juggling a lot in life but this lady blows me away! I’m trying not to feel inferior…ha!
All of her recipes are simple and delicious the definition of comfort food. Everything I’ve ever tried has been awesome but this beef Bolognese – Pasta Alla Ladd–is the #1 hit fave at the Luckett Household for the past few years.
For my teenage boys, Billy and Timmy, it is lean and healthy (if beef is healthy–ha!) with only tomatoes, onions and spices. The combination of these simple ingredients blends perfectly. The red pepper gives it a great, unexpected kick. As I try not to eat carbs I love it just in a bowl with a little Parm on top. It is like chili without the beans, heartwarming and delicious! So before winter winds down give this a try and enjoy the yummy comfort of this simple, tasty meal.
Enjoy this delicious YUM!!!
