Thanks to a combination of our vivacious Italian herb paste and good ol’ tomato paste (no kitchen is complete without it!), this meaty ragu is as deliciously balanced as it is speedy to make. While the spaghetti cooks and the sauce is bubbling, you’ll pop garlic-buttered ciabatta in the oven for a crusty crowd-pleasing side in no time flat. Finish with a generous sprinkle of Parm for guaranteed smiles all around the table.

Large Pot
Small Bowl
Large Pan



• Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Place 2 TBSP butter (4 TBSP for 4 servings) in a small bowl and bring to room temperature. (TIP: To soften butter quickly, microwave for 15-30 seconds.) Wash and dry produce. • Dice tomato into ½-inch pieces.

Cook Pasta

• Once water is boiling, add spaghetti to pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, 9-11 minutes. Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water (2 cups for 4 servings), then drain.

Make Sauce

• Heat a drizzle of oil in a large, preferably nonstick, pan over medium-high heat. Add beef* and season with salt and pepper. Cook, breaking up meat into pieces, until browned and cooked through, 4-6 minutes. • Stir in diced tomato, tomato paste, and ½ cup reserved pasta cooking water (¾ cup for 4 servings). Cook, stirring occasionally, until sauce is slightly thickened, 2-4 minutes. (TIP: If pasta isn’t finished cooking, ladle pasta water straight from pot.) Remove from heat. • Stir in Italian herb paste and half the Parmesan.

Make Garlic Bread

• While sauce cooks, halve and toast ciabatta. • Stir garlic powder into bowl with softened butter. Lightly season with salt. • Spread garlic butter onto cut sides of toasted ciabatta. Cut each piece of garlic bread into four triangles.

Finish Pasta

• Stir drained spaghetti into pan with sauce; toss to coat. TIP: If needed, stir in more reserved cooking water a splash at a time until pasta is thoroughly coated in sauce. • Taste and season with salt and pepper if desired.

Finish & Serve

• Divide pasta between bowls. Sprinkle with remaining Parmesan and serve with garlic bread on the side.

Beef is fully cooked when internal temperature reaches 165°.
