Serves: 6 servings
  • ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cups diced bell pepper
  • 1½ cup chopped onion
  • 2 cups diced mushrooms
  • ¾ lb lean ground beef (I used 96% lean, but any meat will work)
  • 24 oz (one big jar) marinara sauce
  • 1 lb dried spaghetti noodles
  • fresh basil
  • parmesan for serving
  1. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and cook the diced bell peppers, onion, and mushrooms. Cook until soft, then add in the ground beef, breaking it up into smaller pieces and cooking till no longer pink. Season the mixture with garlic salt, salt, and pepper to taste.
  2. Add in the marina sauce and bring to a soft boil. Let cook for 10 minutes.
  3. While the bolognese sauce mixture is cooking, boil the noodles until al dente.
  4. Top the noodles with the bolognese sauce and serve with fresh basil and parmesan. Enjoy!
