1 lb. lean ground beef
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
¾ tsp. salt
¼ tsp. black pepper
1½ cups uncooked farfelle
2 Tbs. sliced fresh basil

Brown ground beef with garlic in large nonstick skillet over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes or until beef is no longer pink, breaking up into ¾ inch crumbles. Pour off drippings.

Stir in tomatoes, salt and pepper; cook over medium heat 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions.

Toss beef and tomato mixture and basil with hot pasta. Sprinkle with cheese and serve.
