A tasty, tangy meat sauce is just moments away when you combine ready-made Sloppy Joe sauce with cooked ground beef, green bell pepper and chopped onions. A generous handful of bread crumbs and Cheddar cheese thickens the sauce.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1 pound spaghetti
- 1 pound lean ground beef
- 1 (15 ounce) can sloppy joe sauce
- 1/2 green bell pepper, diced
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1/2 cup Italian-style dried bread crumbs
- 1/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
In a large skillet, brown beef over medium heat; cook until no longer pink and drain. Add sauce and simmer on low.
Add green bell pepper and onion; mix well. Remove from heat and immediately mix in bread crumbs and cheese.
Add sauce to pasta; serve immediately.
