Bolognese over Creste di Gallo

I got this wonderful pasta in Earth Fare, its the coolest shape, literally translated its called cockscomb like the red fleshy crest on Chickens heads.

I made this for my friend and her little girl, she kindly comes over most Wednesdays to watch Jasmine as I do the blog talk radio show I cook for us all and then we all enjoy a meal together. Its fun and I adore watching her little girl enjoy Auntie Rebecca's cooking.


  • one pack of lean beef
  • 3 small chopped carrots
  • 5 chopped tomatoes
  • one small red onion chopped
  • 4 cloves of chopped garlic
  • 2 tablespoon of Italian herbs 
  • 8 chopped mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh basil
  • salt to taste

  1. heat some olive oil and saute the onions, garlic and beef for 10 minutes to brown. 
  2. then add the mushrooms, carrots herbs and tomatoes
  3. cover and simmer on a low heat for 30 minutes

  13. Those are really cute looking pastas. I love here at the local grocery that they have all different shapes. I also see why pasta comes in bags not boxes. The boxes grow mold in the moisture, and then the pasta gets moldy. This is a recent, and not so good discovery I have made. I am sticking with bags.
