1 green pepper (saute w/ onion and garlic).
1 lb. lean Ground Beef [free range]
14 oz. fresh diced tomatoes
1 lb. grated cheddar
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp basil
1/4 - 1 tsp dried chili peppers (depending on how spicy you like things).
Cook the ground beef. Saute green pepper with onions and garlic. Add to browned ground beef.
Then, add to sauce along with the extra fresh diced tomatoes.
Simmer until well-blended. Toss the hot spaghetti squash with 1 pound of grated cheddar.
