1/2
teaspoon finely chopped garlic
2
tablespoons balsamic vinegar
2
teaspoons Italian seasoning
1
cup part-skim ricotta cheese

  1. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, cook beef, onion and garlic over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until beef is thoroughly cooked; drain. Add vinegar and 1 teaspoon of the Italian seasoning. Spoon ricotta cheese evenly over beef. Top with noodles, making 1 flat layer (noodles will overlap).

Dollop pesto evenly over top. Heat to boiling; reduce heat to low. Cover; simmer 30 minutes or until noodles are soft. Uncover; sprinkle with cheese blend. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut into wedges.
