1 red bell pepper, chopped and sauteed to blacken
1/2 large onion, medium dice, cooked through
4 cloves garlic, crushed and rough-chopped
3/4-ish lb ground beef, cooked on partially-cooked onion, not drained
2/3 lb spaghetti, half-lengths, cooked
1/2 can black olives, broken roughly
1 jar pasta sauce. I use TJ's Tomato Basil Marinara in glass with the green lid.

Stir all that together, after cooking sequentially and transferring to a mixing bowl.

Top with 1/4 lb cheese, grated. Bake 350F/30 min until the cheese is toasty.

Thoughts: We ate it, liked it, but it was rather squidgy and sweet. A slice of garlic bread or a garlic breadstick would have helped a lot. Ditto some green salad.

Use small unit pasta, mixed in uncooked, instead of fully cooked linear pasta. We currently own mini-penne. Keep the red bell pepper raw. Cooking didn't add anything helpful. Add a green bell pepper, but do cook that. Add WAY more garlic. Cook the onion less in the pan. If it weren't for us, a few sauteed mushrooms would be quite nice. Chunks of par-cooked Asian eggplant would be nice too. Consider using Italian Sausage instead of ground beef for More Flavor.
