30 minutesServes 4


  • 3 tbsp. The Fresh Market Olive Oil, divided
  • 1 lb. ground sirloin
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 Pasta Sauce Veggie Kit
  • 1 jar Dave’s Roasted Garlic and Sweet Basil Pasta Sauce
  • 1 package The Fresh Market Linguine (available fresh in our deli dept.)

Pasta Sauce Veggie Kit:

  • 1 c. diced tomatoes
  • 1 c. sliced mushrooms
  • 1 c. diced onion
  • 1 c. diced green bell pepper
  • 1 c. diced yellow bell pepper
  • 4 tbsp. minced garlic
  • 3 sprigs of fresh oregano



1Brown meat

Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers. Add ground sirloin and season with salt and pepper. Using a spatula, crumble the meat until it is no longer pink, about 5 minutes.


2Sauté veggies

Reduce heat to medium and add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan. Add contents of pasta sauce kit, reserving fresh oregano sprigs and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Sauté veggies until they begin to soften, about 5-7 minutes.


3Add aromatics

Meanwhile, strip leaves from oregano stems and roughly chop. Add oregano and 1 tablespoon garlic (more if you like) to pan. Cook additional 3-5 minutes or until garlic is fragrant.


4Simmer sauce

Return sirloin to pan, add sauce and stir to combine all. Season with salt and pepper, as needed, and simmer 15 minutes.
