I came up with this on the fly when I did not want to take the time for full-blown lasagna. My kids are all picky eaters and all asked for seconds! Measurements for spices and herbs are approximate. I do not measure when I cook.

  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook cavatappi in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 to 9 minutes. Drain and transfer to a large casserole dish.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Stir tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, feta cheese, black pepper, onion salt, garlic powder, basil, oregano, parsley, and thyme into ground beef. Simmer until flavors blend, 5 to 10 minutes. Pour ground beef mixture over cavatappi.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until bubbly, about 20 minutes. Let cool 5 minutes before serving.
