Baked Pasta Casserole

1lb pasta, penne or rotini
1lb ground meat, I usually use ground turkey
1 green pepper
1 small onion
1 jar Spaghetti sauce
1 can condensed cheese soup
1 tsp Italian seasoning
Mozzarella Cheese

  • Heat oven to 350°F
  • Cook pasta according to package and again, if you have not noticed I use whole wheat pasta
  • Cook meat with peppers and onions until meat is no longer pink
  • Stir in sauce, soup and seasoning along with some pepper to taste
  • Drain pasta, return to pan and then mix with sauce
  • Put mixture in a greased baking dish (9 x 13 works best) and sprinkle cheese on top.
  • Bake for 20 to 30 minutes or until heated through and cheese is melted.
Words to the Wise:
A super easy meal that can be made in advance. This also freezes very well. If going to freeze, just double the recipe. Yet another kid pleaser. My kids have not met a pasta dish that they don't like.
This recipe is from the Taste of Home magazine.
