Easy Pasta Beef Bake

Total Time
Prep 25 mins
Cook 25 mins

This is a recipe I cut out of the Sunday coupon section years ago. For the tomato products, I like to use Hunt's with basil, garlic and oregano already added. The recipe calls for penne, but I use whatever pasta I have on hand. It's very satisfying and always goes quickly at our house!

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. Brown meat in skillet and stir in tomatoes, tomato paste, tomato sauce, water and red wine vinegar; simmer and stir.
  3. Layer half of the pasta, half meat sauce and half cheese in a 13x9x2 baking dish. Repeat one more layer.
  4. Cover and bake for 25 minutes at 350 degrees.

This was ok... It really had a nice sauce/pasta/cheese ratio, but it just seemed too bland. I should have added some Italian spices to the sauce. That should help! My husband liked it, even so.
