- Pasta Noodles or Shells (any kind)
- Pasta Sauce (any kind)
- Ground Beef
- Salt and Sugar
- 2 pots, a pan and a colander
-Get prepared by getting 2 pots (1 big and 1 small) and a pan.
-Put water in the big pot (wait to put the shells or noodles in)
-Turn the stove on to high (for noodles or shells) WAIT
for it to boil before putting the noodles in.
-Pour the sauce into the smaller pot
-Turn the stove onto medium/high (for sauce)
-Put sugar in (6 tbsp)
-Turn the stove on to medium (for beef)
-Put the beef in the pan and let it cook until brown (not too too brown, but until you see no pink meat)
-When the meat finishes cooking (cover it and turn the stove to the lowest you can get it)
-Around this time the sauce should be warmed up (cover it and turn the stove to the lowest you can get it)
-The water should be close to boiling. When it does start to, put the noodles or shells in AS THEY ARE..meaning do not crack them or break them, they'll sink in by themselves from the heat.
-When they sink in stir them around and let them cook for a while. Keep checking every now and then. Should take about 7-10 minutes depending on the stove. To check to see if they're done, take a fork and pull a noodle or shell out. Throw it against the wall and if it sticks, they're done. Or you could bite it
hahaha if it's firm, they're done.
-Turn the stove down to low for the noodles.
-Take the meat and pour it into the sauce and stir them together. Turn the stove off for both (meat and sauce)
-Take the colander and sit it in the sink, pour the noodles or shells into it and shake it around a little bit. When most of the water is out, pour the noodles back into the pot. I like to run water over the noodles after I drain it. You don't have to.
-If you like to pour the sauce on the noodles, go ahead and pour it on.
Eat with toast, bread, salad, etc..
There you go!! Good luck with cooking..try not to burn anything down
