Serves: 6
  • 1 pound of 93% lean ground beef [or leaner]
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • ½ cup of onion, diced
  • ½ cup of carrot, diced
  • ½ cup of celery, diced
  • 1-24 ounce jar of marinara sauce [I used roasted garlic from Trader Joe's]
  • 32 ounces of low-sodium beef broth
  • 1 cup of cheese tortellini, cooked
  1. Heat a large stock pot or dutch oven to medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and brown, breaking into small crumbles. Remove from pot and discard any liquid.
  2. Add olive oil to the pot and reduce heat to medium. Add onion, carrot, and celery. Sautee until tender, about 12-15 minutes.
  3. Add sauce and broth to the pot and heat through. Return beef to the pot, along with the tortellini.
  4. Serve immediately, with a teaspoon of parmesan cheese on top.
