Directions

Cook the green beans according to the package directions; drain. Meanwhile, in a large pot, cook the ground beef with the onion, green pepper, mushrooms and garlic; drain the fat. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add the tomato sauce, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. Bring to a boil then simmer about 5 minutes. Serve 1/2 cup meat sauce over about 1/2 cup green beans per serving. Top each with 1 tablespoon parmesan cheese.

My changes have lowered the carb count a bit too. It's pretty good and quick, but don't expect to have that great slow-simmered flavor that you get from store bought pasta sauces.
