Mostaccioli Beef Casserole

What's not to love in this cheesy, beefy, pasta bake? Since everything is already cooked, all you have to do is pop it in the oven for 20 minutes and let the mixture heat up and the cheese melt. -Patty Hough of Sun City, Arizona

    I like this recipe. You expect to taste a spaghetti sauce and it's not at all. It had a nice little kick to it which we enjoyed.
