  • 1 1/2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 portobello mushroom caps, gills removed, halved and thickly sliced
  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • Salt and pepper
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 15 ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 cup tiny pasta, such as ditalini
  • 1/4 cup sour cream


In a large pot or Dutch oven, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the carrots and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and browned, about 8 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Transfer the vegetables to a medium bowl. Add the beef to the pot and cook over medium-high heat, breaking it up, until browned, about 3 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Add the vegetable mixture, chicken broth and tomatoes.

Stir in the pasta and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Lower the heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until the pasta is tender, 10 to 12 minutes; season with salt and pepper. Serve topped with the sour cream.
