The title of this recipe doesn’t sound very appealing, but when the main ingredients are hamburger, tomato sauce, and pumpkin, how can you go wrong? The consistency of this is a borderline stew, but I would say it’s more along the lines of a flavorful (not salty) Chop Suey that you used to be served in the cafeteria. I re-vamped it, and made it edible. You’re welcome.



One tablespoon of olive oil

One sweet vidalia onion chopped

One orange bell pepper chopped

One 15 oz jar of arribiata, or fra diavlo tomato sauce

One 15 oz can of pumpkin

One pound of hamburger (to make this dish vegetarian you could easily add extra vegetables and leave out the meat)

One pound bag of pasta of your choice

Green onions (optional)



Cook pasta according to the directions and set aside.

Brown hamburger in a skillet or pan and set aside.

Saute onions and peppers in olive oil until onions are see through. Add can of pumpkin and jar of tomato sauce and stir on medium heat for approximately five minutes. After five minutes add in the hamburger and pasta and simmer for 15 minutes on low heat.

Garnish your dish with green onions if you desire.
