"FRED"

 A simple, Lasagna like in its taste, pasta dish

4 cloves Garlic, sliced
1 white onion, sliced
2 bell peppers, roughly diced
1 cup celery (leaves and all) chopped
1/4 cup parsley, chopped.
1 and 1/2 pounds ground beef
1 tablespoon dry oregano
1 teaspoon salt (plus extra to taste)
1 jar of your favorite pasta sauce
1/2 cup basil, chopped
1 pound of your favorite tube pasta (not spaghetti-like)
1/2 cup parmesan cheese, grated
1/2 cup red wine

sauté the onions and garlic in a small amount of olive oil.
Add meat when they just begin to get soft and brown it slightly.
Add wine, oregano, basil, parsley, celery and peppers.
When this comes to a boil add the pasta sauce.
reduce to a simmer and start the pasta.
Add the parmesan cheese and then the pasta and stir.
Turn off the heat.
 
Serve with a bit more parmesan cheese on top.

some people like to add black olives and crushed red pepper.
