Four-Pasta Beef Bake Recipe

Four-Pasta Beef Bake Recipe

This hearty casserole looks and tastes a lot like lasagna, but it's quicker to prepare since you don't have to layer it. It disappears fast when I share it at a gathering. Served with rolls and a salad, it makes an easy and satisfying supper. -Harriet Stichter, Milford, Indiana
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 25 min. YIELD:16-20 servings

Ingredients

  • 8 cups uncooked pasta (four assorted pasta shapes of your choice)

  • 2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 4 jars (26 ounces each) meatless spaghetti sauce
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 4 cups (16 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • 1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the beef, peppers, onions and mushrooms over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.

"I would get more creative next time and add garlic, more Mozzarella in it, red pepper, and Parmesan. Also some Italian spice. I used Classico roasted garlic and four cheese. It was very good. I halved it and it was still a huge dish, good for 6?"

"Used 1/2 ground beef and 1/2 sweet Italian ground sausage! Adds lots of additional flavor along with some garlic and a dash of Italian seasoning!"

"This is a good, simple dish. However, to perk up the flavor, add 1 or 2 cups of pizza sauce to the recipe or some Italian seasoning. It really does wonders for it. Toss in some red pepper flakes if you like a bit of zest in your food."

"Re: Four-Pasta Beef Bake

I made this for my son-in-law's 50th birthday party. Absolutely everyone loved it. Thank you for a delicious recipe. I also made the white cake with raspberry sauce from your book. I had a few variations but it disappeared quickly. Thanks again.
