Wonderful! You selected and purchased a package of Penne Rigate.

We will simply refer to it as Penne.

Do you realize the cooked ground beef will penetrate the openings of the Penne?

You will also need the following: a package of Ground Beef (Pork or Chicken), 2 or 3 onions, Mr. Goudas Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Mr. Goudas Salt (Sea Salt), Black Pepper and Mr. Goudas Trinidad Style Hot Sauce, 1 can Mr. Wu Chicken Broth (optional), 1 can Mr. Goudas Crushed Tomatoes, and a bunch of Parsley.

Of course, we have included products under the Goudas label as a testament to the man himself and the quality and excellence of his products.

Did you know if a product is not good enough for him, it is, consequently, not good enough for you, his loyal customers?

Therefore, we will not accept any responsibility should your creation turn out to be a disaster, because you chose to use a product without a name or another brand.

We know that you read 1 can of Mr. Wu Chicken Broth (optional) above and may be wondering who is Mr. Wu.
Well, he is the Oriental Mr. Goudas, and he is part of the Goudas family of products!

Let us begin creating our masterpiece.

The cooking instructions for the Penne are quite simple.

In addition, for your convenience, the instructions are printed directly on the label and apply to any variety of Mr. Goudas Pasta.

Depending upon the number of participants and how much each person eats, the instructions are 5 to 6 parts or more of water to the amount of pasta.

Bring the water to a boil (lots of bubbles and steam).

Add 1 teaspoon Salt and 1 tablespoon Oil to prevent the pasta from sticking together.

Put the pasta into the pot and leave the pot uncovered.
You will notice the pasta dancing around like Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

Cook for nine (9) minutes then drain off the excess water and set aside.

We will now make mince meat out of the ground beef.

Place ground meat in large frying pan and place on stove at medium heat.

Cover with water and bring to a boil, all the while breaking the meat into pieces

Dice the onions as per photo.
Add the chopped onions in the final stages of cooking the ground beef.

Should you add the onions too soon, they will burn black and burnt.

Cut a few pieces of Parsley into small pieces and add to ground beef.

The boiling process creates a brown-coloured foam which is to be removed by scooping off with your cooking spoon.

Stir occasionally for even cooking until all the water has evaporated.

At this point, add 1/2 cup of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and fry for a few minutes.
