ABC Pasta with Beefy Tomato Sauce:
I found this recipe on the back of a Catelli Alphabets Pasta box. I adapted the recipe slightly and Lauren loved it!
I portioned the leftovers into lunch/snack size servings and froze them. 

1 pkg Catelli Alphabets
1 tsp olive oil
1/2  lb extra lean ground beef
1 finely chopped onion
2 minced garlic cloves
1 tbsp dried Italian seasoning or 1/2 tbsp oregano and 1/2 tbsp basil 
1 can (28 oz/796 mL) crushed tomatoes
2 tbsp ketchup
1/3- 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese - the recipe called for 3/4 cup, but I started with less and added more to taste

Directions:
Cook alphabets according to package directions. 
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large, deep skillet set over medium heat. 
Add beef, onion, garlic and Italian seasoning; cook, crumbling up the beef with a spoon until browned. 
Add tomatoes and ketchup; simmer for 5 minutes. 
Stir in alphabets and Parmesan cheese. 
Season with salt and pepper to taste.

*Freeze 1 cup portions to have on hand for a speedy heat-and-serve lunch.
