Yes, sirree...this is one of my favorite examples of cross-cultural cooking. I love the full, fresh flavor of Italian red sauce combined with the zest of Mexican red sauces.

- 1 large sweet onion, chopped
- 1 large green bell pepper, chopped

Serve over pasta and top with shredded Monterey Jack cheese for a real "south of the border" pasta fiesta.
