My Kalamata Meat Sauce and noodles is an easier, and tastier, version of my Mama's sauce recipe. The olives lend it a TON of yummy flavor, while the ground beef makes it hearty. It's also pretty cheap, making it a very good choice for this time of year.
Kalamata Meat Sauce
- 1 lb ground beef or turkey
- 1 Tblsp garlic powder
- 2 Tblsp onion powder
- 1 tsp red pepper flakes
- 4 Tblsp Italian Seasoning
- 7 - 8 pitted Kalamata olives, halved
- 1 large can Tomato Sauce
- 1 pkg gluten free noodles (your choice. I used macaroni for this one because it's what I had on hand)
Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, brown meat in seasonings. Add olives and tomato sauce. Simmer until noodles are cooked.
That's it, enjoy! I added Parmesan cheese after the picture was taken and as you can see, we had peas along side. The kids take after their Mama. I never met a pea I didn't like. ;)
