Easy Pasta Casserole


This is a delicious pasta dish that is very easy to make. I like to use spiral noodles, but this recipe can be made with any shaped pasta. Serve with a salad and warm bread if desired.

  • 1 pound pasta

  • 1 pound lean ground beef

  • 1 (32 ounce) jar spaghetti sauce

  • 8 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 ¼ cups Italian-style stewed tomatoes

  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain and reserve.

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. In a large skillet, brown the beef until no longer pink; drain off grease. Add spaghetti sauce, mushrooms, and tomatoes to beef and simmer for 10 minutes or until warmed through.

  4. In a 9x13 inch baking dish, pour in beef and tomato mixture and add pasta; mix well. Sprinkle the cheese evenly over the top.

  5. Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes or until the cheese starts to bubble; serve immediately.
