1 lb lean ground beef or ground sirloin
1/4 cup olive oil
1 T. basil pesto
1 T. minced garlic
1 can diced tomatoes, (I use garlic-basil-oregano flavored)
1 lg. can tomato sauce (24-30 oz.)
1/2 cup onions, diced (optional)
1 cup mushrooms, sliced (optional)
1-2 bell peppers, diced (optional)
1. In a large skillet, cook and stir ground beef, onion, mushrooms and bell peppers until ground beef is cooked through. Drain grease.
2. Add minced garlic, olive oil, pesto, diced tomatoes and tomato sauce. Turn to low heat and allow to simmer while the pasta cooks and you prepare a salad or garlic bread.
3. Serve over your favorite pasta, topped with a generous sprinkle of Parmesan cheese, if desired.
