Protein-Packed Beef Rotini


Ingredients:

  • 8 oz red lentil rotini pasta

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 100g onion, diced

  • 150g red bell pepper, diced

  • 100g cherry tomatoes, halved

  • 2 cups baby spinach

  • 16 oz 96/4 lean ground beef

Instructions:

  1. Cook the red lentil rotini pasta according to the package instructions until al dente. Drain and set aside.

  3. Add the lean ground beef to the skillet and cook until browned and cooked through, breaking it apart with a spatula as it cooks.

  4. Once the ground beef is cooked, add the diced red bell pepper to the skillet and cook for another 2-3 minutes until slightly softened.

  5. Stir in the halved cherry tomatoes and baby spinach, and cook until the spinach wilts and the tomatoes soften, about 2-3 minutes.

  6. Add the cooked red lentil rotini pasta to the skillet and toss everything together until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

  7. Serve the red lentil rotini pasta hot, optionally topped with grated Parmesan cheese.
