Beef And Bow Ties Pasta


1 1/2 cups bow-tie pasta (farfalle)
1/2 cup mixed vegetables
1 pound minced beef
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups chopped fresh tomatoes
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cajun spice
1 teaspoon white pepper
1 red chilli, chopped
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil
3 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese


Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the bow-tie pasta and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the minced beef until browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes; drain off excess fat. Stir in garlic and cook for 5 minutes, stirring frequently. Stir in tomatoes, cajun, salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes are soft, about 5 minutes. Place the bow-tie pasta into a large serving dish, and pour the minced beef mixture over the pasta. Sprinkle on the chopped basil. Toss lightly to combine, and sprinkle with red chillies and Parmesan cheese before serving.
