One-Pot Pasta with Beef & Beans

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30 minutes
  • Total Time: 45 minutes


  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • Salt and pepper
  • 115 ounce can navy beans, drained
  • 1 pint (or 115 ounce can) whole canned tomatoes in juices (I used home canned tomatoes)
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 1 ½ teaspoons dry crushed basil
  • 1 ½ teaspoons dry crushed oregano
  • 4 cups pasta of your choice (I used rigatoni)
  • 2 cups fresh cut green beans
  • Shredded Parmesan cheese


  1. In a large skillet (I used my “big daddy” 12 inch skillet), brown ground beef with onions and garlic over medium-high heat for about 10 minutes or until the ground beef is no longer pink. Once ground beef is thoroughly cooked drain, return to skillet, and add salt and pepper to taste.
  2. Stir in navy beans, tomato, beef broth, basil, oregano, and pasta, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium, cover, and simmer for 12 minutes. Stir in green beans and continue to simmer covered until pasta and green beans are tender.
  3. Remove from heat and serve immediately sprinkled with Parmesan.
