I have made my twist on this dish tons of times.However,I cook my elbows separately,and add at the end,I use a green bell pepper,one large onion instead of two(2 too many),and most of the time I use ground turkey(leaner & cheaper) instead of ground beef.I do not use soy sauce(would be too salty) and if using the dried Italian heb seasoning,I don't see any need in using bay leaves.The Italian seasoning would over power the bay leaves,in my opinion.Instead of adding water to the mixture after the meat is cooked and drained,I add two cans of beef broth.This enhances the flavor gives the moisture needed from the water and tastes great.Along with the Italian seasoning,I would also add some cumin and chili powder sea salt and 1/2 cup of ketchup and the worchestershire sauce.Jalapenos,I add them if I have some on hand.This my friends is good eats!!
