I am sure you are wondering about the name and what exactly this is. Well it is supposed to be SOS but I was down to my last loaf of bread and didn't want to use it all in one sitting. So I looked around in my pantry and found pasta and since they resemble pebbles I renamed it.

I have never had this particular dish before so I was interested to see what it would taste like. Like always the things that don't look the most appetizing turn out tasting delicious. It was easy to make and throw together and was even better the following day when I warmed it up for lunch. I will be honest, I think I like it better on pebbles than I think I would have on shingles.

  • 1 lb ditalini pasta
  • 1 lb beef
  • 1/4 c. flour
  • 2 1/4 c. milk
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • red pepper flakes
  • 2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • salt
  • pepper

  1. Cook pasta according to package.
  2. Meanwhile, cook ground beef, onion and garlic in a large skillet over medium heat until the ground beef is brown. Drain fat.
  3. Sprinkle flour and red pepper flakes over beef, onion and garlic and saute until the flour is absorbed. Gradually stir in milk and Worcestershire sauce.
  4. Bring to a simmer, stirring and continue cooking until thickened about 5-10 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste. Serve hot over pasta.

I find it very rewarding to throw ingredients together willy nilly and see how it comes together. Stews and sauces are great for this. I'll definitely try your SOP.

It looks pretty good to me! A great comfort meal. And sort of like hamburger helper - but much, much better!
