|My mom sent me this in a foreword and I found it very fitting.|
Our first meal in Provo was a whole chicken in a crock pot with tons of onions, carrots, potatoes, and celery. We just threw in a balsamic marinade and let it chill..er...heat, for about five hours and it was perfect! I am so grateful to our friends and family, all of whom got us crock-pots as wedding gifts (just kidding...but we did end up with four total). This means more good meals are in store for the future.
2 lbs ground beef
1 24 oz can of tomato sauce
1/2 a green bell pepper
about a package of Spaghetti noodles
1/4 cup bread crumbs
Salt and pepper
1 1/2 cups cheese (I used half cheddar, half a 4-cheese blend)
Brown the ground beef on medium then drain excess fat. Add the chopped onion, minced garlic, and bell pepper and cook, then add the tomatoes and sauce to warm. Add spices like basil, garlic salt, oregano, pepper, and anything else that you can think of, then cover and simmer for at least 20 mins. Meanwhile, boil the pasta until aldente, drain and put in a 9x13 pan. Add half the cheese and then about 3/4 of the sauce. Top with more cheese then the breadcrumbs then pop in the oven on 375 for about 35 minutes or until golden brown. Vuala! Italy in a pan.
