This is the first OAMC meal that I attempted. I don't remember where I got the recipe from but it remains one of my favorites. It's simple and delicious.

This was good but bland. I'm going to try the italian sausage next time to see if that helps the taste.

This was OK. I did make it a second time to exhange with my freezer meal group, and changed the recipe by doing a combo of italian sausage and ground beef. I sauteed the green peppers along with the onions and mixed it in the meat so they would not be as firm. Changed pasta to rotini.

This was really yummy as I was taste-testing, but after freezing it was rather bland.
