Ready to get cooking? Here’s what to do.

Step 2:

Separate your uncooked spaghetti noodles into four even portions. Do the same with the ground beef. Next, wrap the meat around the center of the noodles, forming it with your hands (the ends of the noodles should be sticking out).

For a demonstration, Scrumdiddlyumptious shows you how in the video below!

*Do this process four times, using one portion of ground beef and one portion of noodles each time.

Step 3:

Add your oil to a large metal casserole dish that can be used both on the stovetop, as well as in the oven. Once the oil is heated, set your spaghetti portions in the dish and begin cooking the meat.

*Be sure to flip when necessary.

Step 4:

Now you’re going to add the garlic, onion, and peppers to the dish – and lightly sautee. Then evenly pour the red wine on top, and cover everything with your tomato sauce. Lastly, sprinkle on the shredded cheese.
