9/17/15 Beef and Pork Ragu with Macaroni noodles

The other day I made meat ragu with macaroni noodles. It turned out really good, I was really surprised how many helpings we all had, it was a really good meal.

To make it I used some ground pork and some ground beef. I cooked the meat in a cast iron with some onion and some salt pepper and Italian seasonings. I also added some garlic to it. I then added some diced tomatoes and tomato sauce to it. I reduced down the sauce until you could no longer see any water with the sauce. I also added a punch of salt to cut the aluminum canny taste of the diced tomatoes.

Here are some pictures of making the Ragu.

I then boiled some macaroni noodles. I made a whole 16 ounce package of them. I then drained the water and added the sauce. I mixed in the ragu sauce and added the last of my shredded mozzarella cheese, the cheese immediately melted into the noodles and the ragu mixed in well.

Here is a picture of how it all turned out.

The noodles were from the food bank, the cans of diced tomatoes and sauce were from the food bank, and the meat and cheese were from food stamps. I have actually been sitting on these noodles in the cupboard for quite a while and I even have another one left. I am really glad to have figured out a really satisfying pantry food bank-food stamp meal that we all loved. I am sure I will make this again.

Until next time in the Boho kitchen. I have now finally reached my goal of 90 blogs in 90 days, for my blog a day challenge, so I think I may take a break for a while. I may just get back to the quality of blogs that I was producing before this challenge, and maybe better now that I have improved my writing skills a bit with practice.

Thanks for reading~ ❤ ❤
