Ground beef is still one of the best buys in the supermarket, even in these days of high prices. It's often on sale, and a pound can be stretched to feed six to eight people. When it's on sale, buy it and freeze it in small portions so it's easy to thaw and cook.
Ground beef can be combined with everything from tomatoes to fruit to cheese to pasta and it will be delicious every time. Try some of these quick and easy recipes and enjoy every bite.
