'Cooking With Mimi'. I think it is a keeper. One pan meals work for me. Serve with crusty garlic bread and a salad and call it done.

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 small onion chopped fine
3/4 cup grated carrots
1 pound ground beef
3 cloves garlic, minced

1 tablespoon dried basil
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 cup red wine
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

1/2 cup heavy cream (I used half and half)
1 cup water
12 oz. pasta (I used Penne)
3/4 cup Parmesan cheese grated
1-1/2 cups mozzarella cheese shredded (divided)
olive oil in a large pan over medium heat. Add the onion and carrots,
and cook for 2-3 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, until
fragrant, 1 minute. Add the ground beef and cook, breaking up into small
pieces with a spoon, until browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Add in dried
oregano, basil, and red pepper flakes. Next, add the red wine and stir
to combine. Add Worcestershire and canned tomatoes, stirring to combine.
Pour in the heavy cream. Stir to combine. Add salt and pepper.
Pour in the water and bring to a boil. Add pasta, stir well. Cover pan and cook until pasta is tender, stirring occasionally.When
pasta is tender, gently stir in grated Parmesan and ½ cup of mozzarella
cheese. Scatter the remaining mozzarella evenly over top. Turn off the
heat. Place lid over skillet and allow mozzarella to melt, 2-3 minutes.
