Ingredients
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 1 yellow onion chopped
  • 1 red bell pepper seeded and chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic finely chopped
  • 3 1/2 cups low-sodium beef broth
  • 2 Yukon Gold potatoes peeled and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/4 pound dried capellini pasta
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
Method

Cook beef in a large pot over medium heat until browned and cooked through, about 7 minutes. Remove from pot, set it aside and pour off all but 1 tablespoon of the fat. 

Add onion, bell pepper and garlic and cook over moderately high heat until softened, about 4 minutes. Add broth, 1 cup water, potatoes, cumin and bay leaf. Bring to a simmer and cook for 10 minutes. 

Add pasta and simmer until al dente, about 5 minutes. Return browned meat and cook until warmed through, about 1 minute. Discard bay leaf, taste and adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, and serve.
