I gave this recipe 4 stars. My future hubby and I really liked this spaghetti. My 7 yr old picky newphew didn't like the peppers or the beans. This makes a nice hearty thick sauce. When I made this recipe I had some already cooked ground beef to use. So I sauteed my peppers and onions in vegetable oil until cooked tender. I did wait to add my garlic until I added my ground beef to prevent it from burning. The rest I followed as directed. My only issue was in the ingredients it says 1/2 cup of water but in the directions it says "in cup of water". I went with the 1/2 cup of water. I used kidney beans as I felt this was the best bean to use. I only needed to simmer my sauce for 10 minutes and it was perfect. Overall I'll make this again! Thanks for posting a yummy recipe!
