Barilla Collezione Casarecce Pasta with Meat Sauce Recipe 
 

Ingredients:

1 box Barilla Collezione Casarecce Pasta
1 jar of Barilla Meat Sauce
1/2 lbs. Ground beef
Parmesan Cheese- toppings
Pink Peppercorn- optional
Salt and Pepper- to taste


Directions:
1.) Cook the pasta according to the package instructions. 9-10 minutes is perfect for "Al Dente" where the pasta is cooked through but not mushy. Just perfect!
2.) In separate pan, brown the ground beef until it cooked through. Add the pink peppercorn if you like ( this is optional). Drain excess oil and put it back on the pan. Add the barilla sauce about 3/4 of the jar depend on how much sauce you want for your pasta. Add more if you need to:)
3.) Simmer the sauce. Add salt and pepper to taste! Set aside.
4.) Drain the cooked pasta and set aside.
5.) - At this point you can totally mixed the pasta and the sauce together OR you can put the sauce on the top of the pasta. Add the parmesan cheese on top! Enjoy!!

( I mixed the sauce and the pasta together! Yum!!!:)
