Pasta with Ground Beef and Tomato
2 servings of mini bow tie pasta
1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

~300 gr medium ground beef
1 onion, sliced
1 large tomato,peeled, diced
1 tbsp olive oil

Garlic-Yogurt Sauce:
1/2 cup yogurt, room temperature
2 garlic cloves, smashed with salt

Red Pepper Sauce:
1 tbsp butter
Red pepper
Cayenne pepper

Boil the pasta with salty water following the instructions on the package, drain. Toss the pasta, olive oil and salt in a pot.

Meanwhile saute the onion with olive oil for about 2-3 minutes over medium heat. Add the ground beef, salt and pepper and cook on medium-low heat until all the water evaporates while stirring. Then add the tomato, cook over medium-low heat until the tomatoes are done while stirring.

Place pasta on a serving dish. Pour the cooked ground beef&tomato mixture all over it. Mix all the Yogurt Sauce ingredients and pour all over the ground beef. Melt the butter in a small pan and add in the peppers. When it starts bubbling, pour over the dish.

Makes 2 servings.

After draining the pasta do you run cold water over it?

Rinsing the pasta washes the starch off, so the sauce will not be able to stick to the pasta. I don't rinse the pasta, I just strain:)
