Step 2: Add 2 lbs of ground beef, 1 cup of chopped onion, ½ cup of chopped green bell pepper, and ¼ cup of chopped red bell pepper. Stir with a spatula and let cook for 5 minutes.
Step 3: After 5 minutes or more, when the meat is no longer pink, discard the moisture from the pan. You can save it as well.
Step 4: Return the Dutch oven to heat and add 1 tsp of garlic and ½ tsp of red pepper flakes. Stir and allow them to cook for 1 minute to 2 minutes.
Step 5: Now, add 2 cans of diced tomatoes, 2 cans of tomato sauce, 2 bay leaves, and 1 tbsp of granulated sugar. Give it a quick stir until the sugar dissolves.
Step 6: Time to sprinkle all the seasonings: 1 tsp of freshly ground black pepper, 1 tsp of sea salt, 1 tbsp of Italian seasoning, 1 tsp of Cajun seasoning, and 1 tsp of paprika.
Step 7: Allow the mixture to simmer for 7 minutes to 10 minutes.
Step 8: Afterwards, add 3 cups of uncooked pasta along with 2 cups of water.
Step 9: Cover the lid of the Dutch Oven and continue simmering for approximately 15 minutes to 18 minutes or until you notice the pasta is completely cooked.
Step 10: When done, take out the bay leaves in case you don’t bother while serving.
Step 11: Remove the dish from the heat and add your last ingredient 10 oz of canned corn. Give it a stir and it is done!
