Fusili With Capsicum Bolognese



I had some peppers that needed using over the weekend so I thought it was the perfect chance to make a recipe I'd seen on cooks.com. I love peppers with pasta so I was well pleased with this. I'm sending it to Ruth from Ruths kitchen experiments for her bookmarked recipes event!


2 lbs. lean ground beef
1 c. onion, chopped
2 med. yellow peppers, diced
2 med. red peppers, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
2/3 c. basil, chopped
1/2 c. parsley, chopped
2 (16 oz.) cans tomatoes, cut up
2 (8 oz.) cans tomato sauce
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 packet fusili (spiral pasta)
Brown beef in skillet; drain fat, add onion, peppers and cook for 3 minutes. Add garlic and saute 30 seconds. Add basil, parsley, tomatoes and sauce and seasonings. Bring to a boil and simmer 25 minutes. Cook pasta according to package directions, drain. Serve sauce over pasta. Makes 7 cups sauce or 8 servings.

I absolutely love bolognese, we seem to have it at least once a week in our house. I'll have to try this recipe too sometime.

Thanks for the entry to Bookmarked Recipes!
