In Marion, Indiana, Trish Quinn serves her family this tasty variation on a basic ground beef and noodle casserole. "This satisfying main dish is simple to make because it uses convenient pizza sauce," she relies. At 83¢ a helping, it's economical, too.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 2 cups elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 2 jars (14 ounces each) pizza sauce
  • 2 cups shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  1. In a large skillet, brown beef over medium heat until no longer pink; drain. Add the macaroni, onion, green pepper and pizza sauce.
  2. Pour into a greased 2-1/2-qt. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° for 20 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with cheese. Bake 10-15 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted.
