"Have a freezer full of venison? This wholesome recipe is perfect for using your pre-packaged ground venison meat. My three and six-year-olds love it, and it isn't gamey tasting at all!!"

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook until al dente, about 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and reserve pasta.
  3. Meanwhile, place the olive oil into a skillet set over medium-high heat. Stir in the onion, and cook until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the venison and cook until crumbled and no longer pink, about 10 minutes. Drain, if necessary. Stir in the tomato sauce, basil, and garlic powder. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and turn off the heat.
  4. Assemble the casserole by spooning a layer of the venison sauce over the bottom of the prepared baking dish. Sprinkle the sauce with Parmesan cheese, and layer with cooked pasta. Top with the sauce, layer with pasta, and half of the Mozzarella. Repeat the layers to use the remaining ingredients, ending with a layer of Mozzarella cheese. Cover the dish with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes. Remove the foil cover and bake until the cheese topping is light gold, about 10 minutes more.

I've made this recipe at least 6 times since I found it on-line. I used Venison the first time but now use ground combo Beef/Pork . Wonderful.

Quick, easy and inexpensive dish with great flavor! Next time I would use less noodles and more sauce. I ended up putting some spaghetti sauce in it to make it a little saucier to suit our tas...

We have a freezer full of venison, so I am always looking for new ideas. I used 12 ounces of wheat penne and 1 1/2 cans of tomato sauce. Even though I used less pasta/more sauce it was still a ...

I made this after my dad got a deer. I couldn't detect a gamey taste, and I didn't change anything. I think next time I'll mix it all together instead of layers. Thanks for sharing!

This was wonderful... easy and reheats well. I added more tomato sauce... just personal preference
