Italian-Style Ground Beef

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Julie Bs Hive

Best results come from using a lean ground meat. Add a green salad and your favorite garlic bread and you have one delicious meal. NOTE: because of previous reviews I'm adding another 1/4 cup to the fine dry breadcrumbs.

I made this for the September 2010 Aussie/Kiwi Swap. It was fast to put together and we tried it with 3 different cheeses: Mozzarella, Provolone and Pepper Jack. I also used Chef Hannath's "Sheri's Homemade Spaghetti Sauce". Scrumptious!
