Hot summer reading and a recipe

Tracy Wiley never expected or wanted more adventure. Solving problems for wealthy Miami clients by day, she relishes her peaceful, well-ordered life by night. Then old friend Kevin Fox, the C.I.A. agent once assigned to protect her, arrives at her door under unusual circumstances and wants to hire her to help him with his current assignment.

          Penne Bolognese-Style

What You'll Need

1 pound lean ground beef
1 large onion, minced (about 1 cup)
3 large carrots, shredded (about 2 cups)
1 jar (24 ounces) Prego® Veggie Smart® Smooth & Simple Italian Sauce
1/2 cup water
3 tablespoons fresh basil leaves cut into very thin strips
3 cups penne pasta, cooked and drained (about 4 1/2 cups)
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese

How to Make It

  • 1   Cook the beef, onion and carrots in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until the beef is well-browned, stirring often to separate meat.  Pour off any fat.
  • 2  Stir the sauce and water in the skillet and heat to a boil.  Reduce the heat to low.  Cook for 15 minutes or until the vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.  Stir in additional water, if needed, until desired consistency.
  • 3   Place the basil and penne into a large bowl drizzle in the Olive Oil and still lightly.  Add the beef mixture and toss to coat.  Sprinkle with the cheese.
