  • 1 1/2 pounds Open Prairie ® Natural* Angus ground beef
  • 1 can (14 to 14.5 ounces) ready-to-serve beef broth
  • 1 can (15.5 ounces) Italian-style diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 cups uncooked bow tie pasta
  • 2 cups sliced zucchini (1/4 inch)
  • 3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot.


Add Open Prairie Natural Angus ground beef; cook 8 to 10 minutes, breaking into 3/4-inch crumbles and stirring occasionally. Remove from skillet with slotted spoon; set aside. Pour off drippings.


Combine broth, tomatoes, and pasta in same skillet, pushing pasta into liquid; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium; simmer, uncovered 15 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in zucchini; continue cooking 5 minutes or until pasta is tender.


Return beef to skillet. Stir in 1/2 cup of the cheese; heat through. Sprinkle with remaining 1/4 cup cheese before serving.
