  • 1/2 stick (4 tbsp) butter
  • 2 onions, chopped
  • 1 lb carrots, chopped
  • 12 cloves/tsp chopped garlic
  • 1.5 lb lean 93% ground beef
  • 1 lb lean 90% ground pork
  • 28 oz can tomato puree
  • 6 oz can tomato paste
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 containers 5.3 oz nonfat greek yogurt (1 cup)


  • Melt butter in a large Dutch oven or pot over medium-high. Add onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned, 10-12 minutes.
  • Add carrots and garlic and stir occasionally until softened, 7-8 minutes.
  • Add beef and pork and cook, stirring and breaking up with a spoon, until no longer pink and just cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes.
  • Add tomato puree, tomato paste, and water. Bring to a boil, then turn heat to low and cook for one hour.
  • Break uncooked pasta in half and add to dutch oven, stirring until covered with sauce. Cook for 8-10 minutes until just barely al dente, still slightly crunchy.
  • Remove pot from heat and let stand for 10-15 minutes to cool slightly before mixing in greek yogurt.
