Make two meals on the cheap and on the quick. What could be better?
Cook pasta as directed on package.
Meanwhile, combine meat, onions, and garlic in large non-stick skillet; cook on medium heat until onions are crisp-tender, stirring frequently, and meat is well-browned. Stir in tomatoes, tomato paste and dressing. Bring to a boil; cover. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 5 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally.
Drain pasta; place in large serving bowl. Add meat sauce; mix lightly. Sprinkle with the Parmesan cheese. Serve 2.
With remaining meat sauce stir in drained kidney beans, salsa, and chili powder. Heat through. Cool completely to put in the freezer for another day or refrigerate overnight for the next meal. Top with shredded cheese when ready to serve.

When the pandemic hit, we started expanding our garden to grow our own food. One of our fastest-growing and most plentiful items are cherry tomatoes. A bit tired of salad, I tried making a bolognese sauce with them for pasta night. It was so incredibly delicious.
This is a joint recipe from my mother-in-law and myself. When I visit her in England, I always prefer to eat her foods over going out. Thankfully, we make a great team in the kitchen!
Take your Bolognese up a level by adding Italian sausage, Parmesan cheese, and cream to the pot. Just a few tweaks to your usual meat sauce recipe can make something truly extraordinary!
