Mama’s Bisghetti

Serves: 6
Total Calories: 965


1 pound ground pork sausage
1 pound lean ground beef
1 onion, diced
1 green pepper, diced
1 (8-ounce) jar sliced mushrooms, drained
2 (26-ounce) jars pasta sauce
Optional: 1 cup red wine
1 (16-ounce) package angel hair pasta, cooked
Garnish: grated Parmesan cheese, crumbled feta cheese
Optional: toasted pine nuts


Brown sausage in a large skillet over medium heat. Drain on paper towels; set aside. In the same skillet, brown beef with onion, green pepper and mushrooms; drain. In a large slow cooker, combine sauce, sausage, beef mixture and wine, if using; stir. Cover and cook on low setting for 4 hours. Serve sauce over cooked pasta; garnish with cheeses and pine nuts, if desired.

Tip: Make a warm loaf of crostini for dinner...a tasty go-with for pasta. Slice a loaf of Italian bread into 1/2-inch slices. Brush olive oil over both sides of each slice; sprinkle with coarse salt. Bake in a 300-degree oven for 20 minutes, or until toasty, turning once.
