Heat a large skillet over medium heat, add the olive oil and ground beef, break it up into small pieces while it cooks, 2-3 minutes (some pieces should still be pink.) drain off the fat.

Add the chopped onions, green pepper and garlic to the meat, stirring every few minutes. Cook 5-6 minutes, or until the vegetables are tender.

Add oregano, basil, parsley, salt and Worcestershire sauce. Sauté for 2-3 minutes.

Add the tomatoes with the juice. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer for 10 minutes.

Add the cooked and drained pasta and mix gently.

Preparation tips you can include in your blog post:

You can substitute ground beef for ground turkey if desired.

You can use a basic Italian seasoning blend in place of the dried oregano, basil, and parsley.

The Worcestershire sauce adds a real nice smoky depth in the background. You can add more or less depending on your taste.

This recipe heats up well! You can also freeze it!
