One Pot Penne



  1. Heat the olive oil over medium in a large pot or skillet that is oven proof. Add the meat and cook, stirring constantly to break up, until brown.
  2. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, garlic, basil, and water.
  3. Stir in pasta.
  4. Bring mixture to a boil and reduce heat so that it is just barely boiling. Cook until pasta is tender. Mine took about 15 minutes.
  5. Stir in ricotta and Parmesan and continue cooking until heated through.
  6. Top with mozzarella.
  7. Place in the oven and turn on the broiler. Watch carefully, so that it doesn't burn. Leave under the broiler until the cheese is melted and beginning to turn brown.
  8. Garnish with chopped basil if desired.
