Easy weeknight blended pasta sauce is on the way!

Getting Started

Chop your mushrooms to the consistency of ground meat using a knife or food processor.

Tip: Use a food processor to chop the mushrooms faster. Briefly pulse just 4-5 times to a finely chopped, crumbly consistency.


  • 2 Tablespoons
    extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium
    yellow onion, finely chopped
  • 3
    garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 Pound
    of your favorite mushroom variety, finely chopped (suggested: crimini)
  • 1 Pound
    80/20 ground beef
  • 1 Tablespoon
    Italian seasoning
  • 1 Teaspoon
    kosher salt
  • 1 (24-oz)
    jar store-bought marinara sauce
  • Pasta
    of choice
  • Salt and pepper
    to taste
  • Grated Parmesan cheese


  1. In a large pan over medium heat, add oil and cook onions, stirring occasionally, until just soft, about 3 minutes. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute.

  2. Add mushrooms to onions and cook for 5 minutes, or until mushrooms are soft and reduced in size.

  3. Add ground beef, Italian seasoning and salt to mushroom mixture and cook until totally browned (about 6 minutes), stirring and breaking up any lumps. Skim off fat leaving about 2 tablespoons.

  4. Stir in marinara sauce and reduce heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes.

  5. Serve over pasta of choice, season with salt and pepper and top with grated Parmesan.
