This is an easy Italian dish, my friend learned from her Italian boyfriend.

  • Servings: 6
  • Prep Time: 15-20 minutes
  • Cook Time: 55 mins--1 hour
  • Total Time: 1 hr. 10 mins--1 hr 20 mins

Ingredients:

1--2 lb Ground Beef
16oz pkg Rotini Noodles
26oz Marinara Sauce
1 Medium Onion
2 cups Shredded Mozzarella Cheese, i mix mozzarella and cheddar

Directions:

Pre-heat oven to 350*

Cook ground beef and onions, season with garlic salt and pepper.

Boil Rotini noodles until al dente'--preferrably under cook--the pasta will cook in the oven later.

When both the beef and the noodles cook to the desired level, combine them in a large casserole dish.

Add sauce and 1 cup cheese--mix all ingredients

Add 1/2 cup of cheese on top

Cover with foil and cook at 350* for 45 minutes.

Remove from the oven, and add more cheese on top.

Cook uncovered for another 10--15 minutes.

Remove from the oven.

Allow to cool for 10 minutes, then serve.
