Baked Pasta

This is a huge recipe, so simple, and you can easily double it and bring an extra over to a friend (or freeze it for another meal)!

2 lbs. ground beef

1 large onion, chopped

3 19oz. cans diced or crushed tomatoes (or 2 cans tomatoes plus 1 can tomato paste)

1 cup beef broth

1 Tbsp Italian seasoning

16oz. package pasta, cooked

4 cups shredded cheddar cheese

Brown ground beef with onion. Add tomatoes and broth. Stir in seasoning. Heat until boiling. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened. (This could take a long time, but even if it does, it’s worth it!) Remove from heat; pour 1/4 cup sauce in the bottom of a roasting pan (or large casserole dish). Add half the pasta, half the remaining sauce and half the cheese. Repeat layers. Bake at 325* until bubbly, about 40 minutes.

Serve with: Tossed Salad and Garlic Bread
