DIRECTIONS

  • Heat olive oil in a large sauce pan over medium heat. Add the bell peppers, and saute them in the oil until slightly softened (5 to 10 minutes).
  • Add spaghetti sauce, diced tomatoes, red wine, the oregano, basil and garlic. Partially cover pot; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring often.
  • Reduce heat, partially cover pot and simmer sauce for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Meanwhile in a separate pot, boil water and prepare noodles al dente; drain.
  • Add fresh or frozen meatballs (or browned ground beef) to sauce; cook an additional 10-15 minutes, until hot and bubbly.
  • In individual bowls, ladle sauce over hot noodles.
  • Serve with grated Parmesan cheese and snipped fresh herbs (such as basil, parsley or oregano) at the table, as desired.
  • Great served with a tossed green salad & Mom's Onion Parmesan Bread recipe #109257, and a nice bottle of red wine!
  • Salut!
