Four-Pasta Beef Bake

Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min.

Makes

2 casseroles (8-10 servings each)

This hearty casserole looks and tastes a lot like lasagna, but it's quicker to prepare since you don't have to layer it. It disappears fast when I share it at a gathering. Served with rolls and a salad, it makes an easy and satisfying supper. -Harriet Stichter, Milford, Indiana

Ingredients

  • 8 cups uncooked pasta (four assorted pasta shapes of your choice)
  • 2 pounds ground beef
  • 2 medium green peppers, chopped
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 4 jars (26 ounces each) meatless spaghetti sauce
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the beef, peppers, onions and mushrooms over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.
  2. Drain pasta and place in a large bowl; stir in the beef mixture, two jars of spaghetti sauce and eggs.
  3. Transfer to two greased 3-qt. baking dishes. Top with remaining sauce; sprinkle with cheese. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°.
