DINNER: Farfalle pasta with minced meat and vegetables

Pasta and minced (ground) beef always go well together 👌. Nowadays I enjoy more of farfalle pasta, I have phases 😁. Sometimes I eat more of spaghetti, elbow or lasagne.

This is how I prepared my meal and enjoyed it with my BFF Bree ❤.



  • Farfalle pasta
  • Water
  • Salt
  • Cooking oil (preferably heart friendly)


Put some water in a pot, add salt and 2 tablespoon of oil and let it come to a boil.

Make sure water will be more than pasta . Add in your pasta and keep stirring once in a while .

Let it cook for about 10 minutes or al dente.

Drain, give it a quick rise with cold water .

Add one tablespoon of oil in a pot ,pour in the rinsed pasta, return to stove/gas let it heat up as you keep stirring .



  • Minced meat
  • Garlic- crushed
  • Red onion
  • Tomato paste
  • Garam masala
  • Turmeric
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Put the ground beef in a Pan, cook on medium low heat,  keep stirring as you break the lumps until it’s all brown .

Add crushed garlic ,and chopped red onion, season with salt and pepper give it a good mix . Cover and let that cook down for about 5 minutes .

Add tomato paste , garam masala, turmeric (other spices that you like ) add water just to cover the minced meat ,let it cook on low heat for about 20 minutes .



  • Colored peppers( 1 red, 1 yellow) cut into Julienne strips
  • 1 large Carrots cut into Julienne strips

Keep turning until they are al dente and remove from heat.

Now that everything is ready, serve hot and enjoy!!!
