How to make it

  • In a Dutch oven or large saucepan brown the ground meat seasoned with Cavender's Greek seasoning. Remove meat and add 2 tablespoons of the Olive Oil.
  • Add the bell peppers, cherry peppers, and onion, cook and stir until tender.
  • Add only 1 can of diced tomatoes, the liquid from both cans of beans but not the beans, wine, V8, bouillon cube, basil, oregano, Splenda or sugar, and cinnamon. Mix well. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15 mins
  • stir in second can of tomatoes and bring to a boil then reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 15 more mins.
  • Then add both cans of beans, meat, tomato sauce, black pepper, garlic and ginger; bring to a boil while stirring (careful not to burn the beans) reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 1/2 hour stirring occasionally.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste cover and cook another 1/2 hour or to desired thickness (I like mine Thick!).
  • Serve hot, over drained Bucatini, spaghettoni (thick spaghetti) or fettuccine and top with some Shredded Cheddar and/or chopped raw onion, if desired.

    Tons of flavor here. Used straight up spaghetti.
    See Poppa Jacks Hunters Spaghetti Sauce for more praises.

    Your welcome Joyce, Anytime night or day...I'll get ya fixed ;) I've never had Caciocavallo Podolico but it sounds great! My family disagrees on whether this recipe is a sauce or a Mediterranean style chili. If there are any left overs it's always eaten as a stand alone dish or a topping for baked potato...Oh and the sweet and spicy makes it good even on a sweet potato.

    Well needless to say Jack,you did it again. ( Come to Poppa...Bob Seger )
    I would make only one slight alteration tho...I would drop the reins of spaghetti,top it with a nice Caciocavallo Podolico and use a spoon :o)
    Other then that,it sounds delicious!
    Wishing you and your family a great week-end.
    Kind Regards
