This is a recipe that my mother used to make. I switched out the green bell peppers for red bell peppers as I find the taste mellower and easier to digest. I enjoy a bit of background heat so I used the cayenne or aleppo peppers. I also use my own home canned crushed tomatoes. I sometimes serve it over spaghetti squash instead of noodles.
