Tasty Tuesday Bichon Beef and Pasta



Today, I am sharing our friend Jackpot's favorite meal! His mom loves to cook for him!

Jackpot's Beef and Pasta

1 box whole wheat shells
5 cups water
1 lb coarse ground chuck
1 16 oz can whole tomatoes
8 ounces cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon "Better than Bouillon" beef flavor

Add the broth and water to a big pot and bring to a boil. Add the pasta, turn heat to simmer and cover. Simmer for 45 minutes. Pull beef into chunks and add to hot pasta. Stir well, cover and let it sit for about 5 minutes. Uncover, stir, beef will be done. Stir in the Better than Bouillon." Then, drain the whole thing in a colander. Just drain, do not rinse in water.

Put beef and pasta back into hot pot. Stir in the cheese, I crumbled the cheese for this, but you can shred it. Drain the tomatoes. Break them up into pieces and add them to the beef and pasta.

Cool before serving.

Optional: sprinkle dehydrated kale on top before serving. I make this with the dehydrator.

Yield 7 cups

Keeps in fridge 3 days.
Keeps in freezer 3 months.


Beemer sure does love it!!

Monday's Inspiration




"This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good." 

Happy Monday!
