INGREDIENTS:

 

8 ounces medium pasta shells

 

1 tablespoon olive oil

 

1 pound ground beef

 

1/2 medium sweet onion, diced

 

2 cloves garlic, minced

 

1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning

 

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

 

2 cups beef stock

 

1 (15-ounce) can tomato sauce

 

3/4 cup heavy cream

 

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

 

6 ounces shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese, about 1 1/2 cups

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain well.

 

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add ground beef and cook until browned, about 3-5 minutes, making sure to crumble the beef as it cooks; drain excess fat. Set aside.

 

Add onion to the skillet, and cook, stirring frequently, until translucent, about 2-3 minutes. Stir in garlic and Italian seasoning until fragrant, about 1 minute.

 

Whisk in flour until lightly browned, about 1 minute.

 

Gradually whisk in beef stock and tomato sauce. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until reduced and slightly thickened, about 6-8 minutes.

 

Stir in pasta, beef and heavy cream until heated through, about 1-2 minutes; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Stir in cheese until melted, about 2 minutes.

 

Serve immediately.
