Dinnertime is so much easier when you start with perfectly seasoned Prego sauce. 5 ingredients and 25 minutes from skillet to table and you’ve got a dinner that everyone will love. It’s the answer to the “what’s for dinner?” question on those busy weeknights. We used ground beef, but ground chicken, turkey or sausage will work just as well.

ounces uncooked tube-shaped pasta (ziti) (about 2 1/2 cups)
tablespoon olive oil
medium onion, diced (about 1/2 cup)
pound ground beef
jar (24 ounces) Prego® Traditional Italian Sauce or Prego® Fresh Mushroom Italian Sauce
Cook and drain the ziti according to the package directions. While the ziti is cooking, heat the oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium heat. Add the onion and cook for 5 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally.
Season the beef with salt and pepper. Add the beef to the skillet and cook until well browned, stirring often to separate meat. Pour off any fat.
Stir in the sauce and cooked ziti and cook until hot. Season to taste. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese before serving, if desired.
