This recipe was from my Junior High Home Ec class. I can't believe my mom has saved the recipe sheet for so many years. However, I am glad because we are still enjoying this easy recipe. The original recipe calls for Penne pasta but we like this with a types of pasta.

Nice comfort food. I used about 1 tsp of oil and instead of chopping the green pepper I cut it into strips. The onion I sliced and seperated into rings. Also, I decided to add a couple of fresh tomatoes, diced. Served it over the penne pasta. Thanks for posting this wonderful recipe.
