A Winning Recipe!

Tonight was full of excitement at our house. Why, you may ask? Because I made a new recipe and everyone ate it! Now, cooking for my husband is no biggie. He eats almost anything. But the girls are picky. I do not cater to their pickiness. They get what we eat (at dinner time) and usually they don't much like it. Tonight they ate it and the Genius even had seconds! So I must share this recipe!
It is called "Confetti Spaghetti"

1 package spaghetti
1 pound ground beef (or other meat)
1 chopped green pepper (I used red)
1 chopped onion
1 can (14 1/2 oz) diced tomatoes undrained
1 can (8 oz) tomato sauce
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon each of salt and chili powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3/4 cup shredded cheddar

Cook spaghetti according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook meat, pepper and onion together until meat is cooked through. Drain and return to skillet. Stir is tomatoes, sauce and spices and mix well. Drain spaghetti and add it into the skillet and mix well. Transfer to a greased 13x9 baking dish. Cover and bake at 350 for 30 minutes. Remove and add cheese and cook for 5 more minutes.

It was so good! My husband said it is his new favorite and he is taking leftovers for lunch tomorrow. Let me know if you give it a try!
