  • Bring a large pot of water, with 1 TBSP salt added, to a boil. Cook the pasta to al dente according to the package directions.
  • Meanwhile, heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add ground beef. Brown the beef while breaking it up into small chunks as it cooks. Season the meat with salt and pepper, then drain off excess fat as needed. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute more until garlic is fragrant.
  • Stir in minced onion, brown sugar, tomatoes, worcestershire sauce, chili powder and one half of the parsley.Reduce heat and simmer for 10 - 12 minutes to allow flavors to blend.
  • Drain cooked pasta and add to the skillet, stirring to coat the pasta with the sauce. Add half the mozzarella cheese and toss to coat the noodles and melt the cheese.
  • Top with the remaining mozzarella and parsley. Cover the skillet to melt the cheese. Serve immediately.


You can place an oven-safe skillet under the oven broiler for a minute or two for hot and bubbly melted cheese.
