Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • 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. Add spaghetti sauce, tomatoes, onion, garlic, basil, oregano, salt, and pepper. Cook over low heat until sauce is hot, about 15 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Cook mafalda noodles at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain.

  • Add cooked and drained noodles to the sauce and stir until completely coated. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese on top.

  • Set an oven rack about 6 inches from the heat source and preheat the oven's broiler.

  • Place skillet under the hot broil and cook until cheese is golden and bubbly, 3 to 5 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can use ground turkey in place of beef, if you like.

This is really good and it works exactly as written. If you don t have mafalde pasta use lasagna sheets broken into pieces. Read More

I followed the recipe exactly as written except for the noodles. Like a previous reviewer, I used regular lasagna noodles and broke them into 2 inch pieces. This is a very easy, and quick dinner! Read More

Very yummy! I followed the recipe exactly as written except that I couldn’t find the mafalda noodles so I used cavatappi instead. I also added some spoonful dollops of ricotta cheese on top before I sprinkled the mozzarella cheese on and then broiled per the recipe. I think the ricotta was a great addition to make the dish more reminiscent of lasagna. I will definitely be making this again! Read More

I used turkey in place of beef as I no longer am allowed to eat any beef pork--no red meat at all. I did everything else the same but without salt/pepper. Rarely use either of them. I loved it. Actually turned on my oven (a VERY rare thing as I am alone now.) Tasted great. Read More
