This is a simple casserole with lots of flavor. I usually make several and freeze one for a busy day.
Cook 200 grams of pasta. ( I used whole wheat spaghetti broken into pieces)
- 2 lbs hamburger
- 2 tsp olive oil
- 1 minced onion
- 2 cloves minced garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup chopped peppers ( I had frozen mixed pre chopped peppers in my freezer )
Saute vegetables in oil and add meat. Fry until meat is browned. Drain any excess fat.
ADD and simmer
- 2 680 ml cans of tomato sauce
- 2 tbsp chopped sun dried tomatoes in oil
- 2 cups tomato juice
- 2 large chopped fresh tomatoes
I added fresh parsley, oregano and thyme form my herb pot. If you don't have fresh add dry spices. I also add 1/4 tsp of dry chili peppers.
Simmer for 1/2-1 hour.
Combine pasta and sauce in a large casserole and top with grated cheese. Bake uncovered at 350 for 45 minutes.
I made Anneliese's french bread with this, and Caesar salad.
Good comfort food on a drizzly day.
