Parmesan Beef Pasta


1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
1 14 ounce can of beef broth
1 14.5 ounce can diced tomatoes
2 cups uncooked farfalle (bow tie) pasta
2 cups sliced zucchini, 1/4 inch thick
3/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese


In a large skillet over medium high heat, brown the ground beef until no longer pink, breaking up into 3/4 inch pieces. Remove beef with a slotted spoon to a bowl. Pour off the drippings.

Return the skillet to the heat and add the beef broth, tomatoes, and pasta. Stir to coat all of the pasta. Bring to a boil and reduce heat to medium.

Cook, uncovered, for 15 minutes stirring frequently. Add zucchini and continue cooking for an additional 5 minutes or until pasta is tender.

Return beef to the skillet and stir in 1/2 cup of the cheese; heat through. Sprinkle the remaining cheese over each serving.
