Neely's Barbecue Beef Spaghetti


I am all about cooking quick meals throughout the week. I found this recipe in the latest edition of Essence Magazine. Check it out when you get a chance because they have a lot of good simple quick recipes in there and the June issue has some good recipes too. Happy cooking!

Makes 4 servings
Prep time: 5 minutes
cooking Time: 15 minutes

12 ounces dried spaghetti
1 tablespoon of olive oil
1/2 cup chopped bell pepper
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1/2 cup barbecue sauce
1/2 cup pasta cooking water
2 cups shredded cooked lean beef, pork or chicken

Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile in large skillet heat oil over medium heat. Add bell peeper, onion and garlic; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in barbecue sauce and if needed, pasta water. Bring to simmer; cook, stirring frequently, to prevent sticking; reduce heat. Add meat and drained spaghette; mix well and serve.

I HAVE GOT TO TRY THIS. WHAT A GREAT IDEA FOR PASTA! A GREAT TWIST OF THE TRADITIONAL TOMATO SAUCE
