Fire-Roasted Spaghetti



I know it's the weekend to do a little grilling but I just wasn't in the mood for a burger or a hot dog so I decided to grill up a little spaghetti instead.


Here is what went into my spaghetti:
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 4 slices turkey bacon
  • 1 can fire roasted tomatoes with garlic
  • 1 can corn, drained
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 cup sliced mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp cheddar
  • 1 tsp chopped fresh spicy basil
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp cracked pepper
  • Tabasco to taste
  • 8 oz spaghetti, cooked al dente

Blacken your bell pepper on the grill for about 10 minutes, turning occasionally. Remove from grill and dice. Set aside. (I stole a little slice off the pepper. Shhhh!)


Cook the bacon on the grill in a bit of olive oil until crisp. Drain on a paper towel.

Brown your ground beef. Add the salt, pepper and 1 tbsp of the Worcestershire.


Remove the beef and add the corn. Cook until lightly browned.


Add the mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Add in the roasted pepper. Cook again for 5 minutes.

Next, add in the beef, bacon, 1 more tbsp of Worcestershire, and Tabasco. Cook for about 10 more minutes.


Serve on a bed of spaghetti. Top with a little sharp cheddar and fresh spicy basil. This spaghetti is just bursting with smoky, fire-roasted goodness!

It looks wonderful! And I love the idea of cooking it that way.
