Leftover Meatballs and Sausage Italian Style Goulash

One of my kids favorites in their younger days
and now as adults they still ask mama to make this one!
A classic favorite in our house!

Leftover meatballs and sausage from Traditional Sunday Sauce, put  meat in the food processor and pulse a few times. Or mash by hand. (I had around 4 of each)
1 pound of elbow pasta or any kind you like, spirals, bow ties, ziti all work well
1 large can of crushed tomatoes or if you have leftover sauce use that,( another option is to use canned or jar store bought sauce)
1 bell pepper
2 cloves garlic
2 tablespoon olive oil
long shreds of grating cheese

Mash the meat and set aside. Boil the pasta to package instructions and set aside.
In a large fry pan saute garlic and peppers until soft around 3 to 4 minutes, do not brown.  Add the can of tomatoes, or sauce of choice. Simmer around 10 minutes. Add the boiled pasta. Place on a plate, sprinkle with grating cheese, serve with garlic pizza or garlic knots.
