This Italian Spaghetti Recipe is made with ground chuck beef, an old fashioned pasta sauce and topped with sour cream.
I developed the recipe many years ago, when I wanted a
good old Italian Recipe with authentic flavor, usually only found in Italian restaurants.
About twenty years ago my son started topping this dish with Parmesan Cheese and sour cream.
family and friends liked this combination so much that since then, I
have never made it or served spaghetti in any other way. I think you will agree, it is a special treat!
Cook noodles in boiling salted water 12-15 minutes until done. Drain.
While they are cooking, put olive oil in skillet and turn on medium heat. Add meat, bell pepper, and onion. Cover and cook until meat is no longer pink, stirring occasionally. Takes about 8 minutes.
Add tomatoes and spices. Cover skillet, leaving lid ajar to allow
some steam escape. Turn heat down to low and simmer until sauce is
thickened to your preference. Takes about 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and serve hot on top of noodles. Top with cheese and a dollop of sour cream.
