2 cloves garlic, minced

4 tbsp olive oil

16 oz pasta sauce

1 tsp Italian seasoning

1/2 tsp red pepper flakes

1 tbsp Worcestershire sauce

Salt and pepper to taste

1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Heat remaining 3 tbsp olive oil in skillet and sauté beef, onions, peppers, and garlic. Add in sauce and seasonings. Transfer mixture to the large bowl with the pasta and mix to combine well.
