In a large skillet brown 5 lbs. of ground beef. While meat is browning I chopped 3-4 stalks of celery, 2 medium sized yellow onions, 2-3 cloves of garlic and tossed them in with the meat to soften.

Once the ground beef and vegetables were finished I sat them aside. Fill a large stock pot with water and bring to a boil. Add Bowtie pasta with a pinch of Kosher salt and a drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil. After the pasta is cooked, drain it and set it aside.
