Cook the pasta following the instructions on the packaging. Next, brown the ground beef, drain the excess fat, then, set aside in a separate dish. Then using same skillet you browned your beef in, sauté the onion and garlic in about 2 TBS of butter. Stir in the flour for about a minute on low heat, careful not to burn. Slowly stir in the stock, pasta sauce, and the herbs and seasonings. Let the whole thing boil and thicken. Add back in the meat, heavy cream, salt, and pepper. Stir to combine.
