  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 small onion, peeled and chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
  • 1 red bell pepper, peeled, cored and diced
  • 1 package (16 ounces) uncooked rotini pasta
  • 1 can (28 ounces) diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups beef broth
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, freshly shredded


  • In a thick bottomed pot over medium heat, heat olive oil. Add ground beef and cook, breaking with the back of the spoon, until color changes and begins to render fat.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  • Add onions, garlic, and bell peppers and cook softened. Drain excess fat, if needed.
  • Add pasta, diced tomatoes, broth, milk, and ketchup. Stir to combine and bring to a simmer. 
  • Lower heat, cover, and continue to cook, stirring occasionally, for about 10 to 15 minutes or until pasta is al dente and sauce is mostly reduced.
  • Add cheese, stirring to combine, and cook for another 1 to 2 minutes or until melted. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot.
