Easy weeknight blended pasta sauce is on the way!
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.
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.
Add mushrooms to onions and cook for 5 minutes, or until mushrooms are soft and reduced in size.
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.
Stir in marinara sauce and reduce heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes.
Serve over pasta of choice, season with salt and pepper and top with grated Parmesan.
