Step 3: If you can multitask then brown your ground beef or in my case ground turkey. If not, then brown your meat AFTER you finish cooking the pasta. It's fine. The pasta can sit and wait until you need it. To brown your beef/turkey, simply open the package and flip it into a skillet. Set the stove to medium heat and use a wooden spoon or spatula to move the meat around & break it up into small pieces. I like to add a little spinkle of salt & pepper at this point just because. But it's not needed.
