Recipe Steps

  • Step 1 - Cook the Pasta

    Cook the Pasta

    Bring a medium pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Put a colander in the sink. Once the water is boiling, add the pasta. (The linguine may stick out of the pot. After a minute or two of cooking, the pasta will be soft enough to be completely pushed in to the water.)

  • Step 2 - Prepare the Ingredients

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Chop tomatoes into ¼" pieces. Slice baby bella mushrooms into thin pieces. Stem parsley, stack leaves and cut into thin strips (chiffonade).

  • Step 3 - Brown the Beef

    Brown the Beef

    Heat a medium pan over medium heat and add ground beef. Use a spatula to break the beef up in to small pieces as it cooks. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

  • Step 4 - Add the Vegetables to the Sauce

    Add the Vegetables to the Sauce

    Add chopped tomatoes and sliced mushrooms to pan. Stir together. Let the sauce bubble over medium-low heat, stirring frequently for about 8 minutes. Let reduce for 5 minutes.

  • Step 5 - Add the Mascarpone Cheese

    Add the Mascarpone Cheese

    Stir in mascarpone cheese and salt and pepper to taste. By now, the pasta should be al dente. Drain pasta, and stir pasta in to the sauce.

  • Step 6 - Plate the Dish

    Plate the Dish

    Ladle a mound of pasta in the center of the plate, twirling the pasta to create some height as you go. Garnish with fresh Parmesan and parsley.
