Beef and Pepper Penne Pasta Recipe

How to cook easy penne pasta sauce recipe.

Personally I love the taste of tomatoes but much to my amazement I have a friend who loves pasta dishes but is not too keen on the taste of too much tomatoes; So Jeena has come to the rescue and come up with a dish to solve this problem.

I do recommend this recipe to absolutely anyone that loves the taste of penne pasta as this is a dish that will be sending you back to the kitchen for more !

I use minced beef, bell peppers and dried herbs and paprika in this tasty delicious pasta recipe, it was absolutely wonderful.

I served the pasta with freshly grated Parmisan cheese and fresh crispy french bread.

Enjoy it as you will love it !
