Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, heat olive oil. Saute garlic and onions in oil until tender. Stir in tomato paste, black pepper, cumin, thyme, tomato juice, water, ketchup and salt. Reduce heat to low, and simmer 15 minutes.
  3. While sauce is simmering, bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  4. Stir the cooked pasta into the sauce. Stir in 1 cup of the shredded mozzarella. Pour all into a 9x13 inch baking dish. Top with the remaining mozzarella, sliced olives and bell pepper.
  5. Bake in preheated oven 20 to 30 minutes, until hot and bubbly.

This recipe was good, but it was a little dry. I think it needed a little bit more sauce.

pretty good...there's potential. I used a can of diced tomatoes (minus some of the juice)instead of just tomato juice and put the green pepper into the pasta instead of just on top and used a 4 cheese mix I had on hand instead of the mozzarella. Overall it was good, but i think next time I'll used a little less pasta, try it with mozzarella, use less onion (and i love onion), and add mushrooms into the mix as well.

There wasn't enough sauce- I'd have to double or even triple the recipe amounts. We've been eating leftovers with canned sauce heaped on it. Also, the thyme in the recipe gave it a strange taste.
