Green Pepper Spaghetti

This is an old recipe that was handed down from my grandmother (given to her by her mother) to my father, and now to me.

I absolutely love pasta.  And this recipe is so simple to make!  And oh-so-good, too!

Before you begin making your sauce, go ahead and put some noodles on to boil in another cooker!  Usually I make about 1/2 a box of spaghetti noodles for this sauce.  

Green Pepper Spaghetti Sauce Ingredients:

1 large green pepper, diced
1 large onion, diced
2 large tomatoes, diced (optional:  large can of diced tomatoes)
1 large can of tomato juice
1 small pack of hamburger (this is optional.  i've also used pre-made meatballs too)
salt and pepper to taste (i go light on both)


dump everything into a large cooker.  bring to a boil, then simmer for 20 minutes.  stir often so nothing burns to the bottom.  and make sure your hamburger is browned and the veggies are tender!

drain the noodles from the other pot.  place them back in their original pot and immediately pour the finished sauce on top.  (if you leave drained noodles sitting without water, they tend to get hard and rubbery!).

then enjoy!  awesome spaghetti made simple.

This recipe makes about ten 1 cup servings.  Best part of all is, it's low-fat and takes less than 1/2 an hour to prepare.


  1. That sounds yummy. I'd have to puree the veggies first so that my kids couldn't see them, though. :P

    1. lol...that made me a chuckle a little bit!
