Quick Skillet Dinner

Skillet dinner is not beautiful looking. It isn't really the thing you would serve at a dinner party, or actually to anyone not in your immediate family. But, it is quick, very tasty and gives you a warm and comfortable feeling. So we advise you to make it...just maybe don't roll it out for first time visitors :p

Skillet dinner is super flexible. You can add and leave out ingredients to your liking. For ours we used:

3 cups pasta (spiral) 
1 lb (500 g) ground beef
1 onion, chopped
1 carrot, chopped
1 bulb garlic, chopped
1 can kidney beans
1 can corn
1 can diced tomatoes, in sauce
Salt, pepper, other herbs and spices

Cook the pasta according to the package directions.

Cook ground beef, onion and garlic in a pan over medium-high heat. Once the ground beef is almost fully cooked, add beans, corn and tomatoes. and any herbs or spices you wish. We used salt, pepper, basil, oregano and red pepper flakes.

Once the pasta is cooked, drain and add to pan on the stove. Mix well, finish heating thoroughly.

Serve with salad and bread and done! In the time it makes to cook pasta you have an entire meal.
