Matt Banner, a freshman finance major, cooks up an original dish on the fly. Raised in a household of Italian chefs, Banner shows the techniques he learned growing up in the kitchen. Pasta de Banner is a simple, yet interesting mix of vegetables and pasta that is sure to please your taste-buds!



  •  1 cup of mushrooms
  •  1 cup of onions
  •  2 cloves
  •  1 pound of ground meat
  •  ½ cup of okra
  •  ½ teaspoon of salt
  •  ½ teaspoon of pepper
  •  1 serving size of noodles
  •  ½ cup Spaghetti Sauce



Begin by washing all of the vegetables thoroughly. Then dice the onions into small pieces. Once the onions are diced, cut the cloves into very small pieces. Also dice the okra into small chunks.

Next, place all the diced vegetables into a pan. Cook in the pan until the onions begin to caramelize or turn light brown.

After the vegetables are cooked place ground meat into pan and cook until meat is dark brown (or desired meat preference.)

Once the meat is cooked, place the vegetables and the meat in the same pan. Stir the vegetables and the meat together.

Next, bring water to a boil. Add pasta noodles once water is boiling. Cook pasta in boiling water for approximately 10-12 minutes.

Once the pasta is cooked and ready, add it to the stir-fry of vegetables and meat.

Stir the noodles and stir-fry as desired. Add Spaghetti sauce and stir.

That is it! Enjoy eating your Pasta de Banner!
