Slop Around The Pot

Don't let the name fool you, this Sloppy Dish is an easy fantastic meal made in one pot (or maybe two depending on when you cook the pasta). I am not much of a meat sauce fan for "macaroni" but this is a comforting, warm you up kind of recipe that is a family favorite! 

This recipe below will serve 6-8 hearty portions!!

1 pound Shell Macaroni, cooked aldente
1 pound Ground Beef (I like the 85/15 or 90/10 meat to fat ratio)
1 tablespoon Vegetable Oil
2 tablespoons Worchestershire Sauce
1 tablespoon Cracked Black Pepper
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Seasoning Salt
1 tablespoon Chopped Garlic
1/3 cup Red Wine
1 large Bell Pepper
1 large White Onion
2 quarts Tomato Sauce/Marinara Sauce

In a hot skillet over medium heat, sauté onions and peppers until tender in vegetable oil.
Set aside.
In same pan sauté beef until meat is cooked through and all liquid has evaporated, skimming off any fat that rises to the top while cooking.
Add back in onion and pepper blend as well as tomato sauce. 
Season with salt, pepper, garlic, seasoning salt, worchestershire sauce &
red wine.
Simmer over medium-low heat for 10 minutes.
Fold in cooked, drained pasta and toss well. 
Turn heat to low, let marry for 4 minutes.
Remove from heat.
Serve with side of Garlic Bread.... you won't want to waste this sauce!!!
Sprinkle with Parmesan Cheese..lots of it!
For the Italians, a dollop of Ricotta is great!
Bon Appetite
