4 servings, 1 cup pasta & about 1 cup sauce each | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 40 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add onion, carrots, celery and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil. Add pasta and cook according to package directions. Drain.
  3. Add beef to the vegetables and cook, breaking up with a wooden spoon, until cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Increase heat to medium-high, add wine and cook until almost evaporated, 1 to 1 1/2 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste and nutmeg; reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, for 10 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in salt and pepper. Serve the pasta with the sauce.
