1 pound penne pasta

1 (1 ½-pound) package frozen pre-made beef/onion hamburger patties, thawed

1 cup jarred pizza sauce (plus extra if needed)

½-1 cup chicken or beef broth

½ cup heavy cream

2 pinches ground nutmeg

Salt and pepper, to taste

Parmesan cheese, grated or shredded


In a large pot, bring salted water to a boil, and cook pasta according to package directions.


Break apart hamburger patties into bite-sized pieces, and cook, stirring often, in a large skillet over medium-high heat.


Pour pizza sauce, broth, cream and nutmeg over browned hamburger meat, and heat 5-8 minutes on medium until combined and heated through. Add salt and pepper to taste.


Drain pasta and stir into sauce. Add more pizza sauce or broth, if desired, for a thinner sauce. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top, and serve.
