This Italian Pepper Pasta is pretty much a homemade spaghetti with bell peppers added. It’s easy and tastes great. You can add any veggies you like…carrots or zucchini would be good too. You can even replace the beef with ground Italian sausage and it would taste great! I made this dish in my dutch oven.
Here are other items I used in this recipe:
