DIRECTIONS

  • Set oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease a medium casserole dish (or a dish large enough to hold the mixture).
  • In a skillet cook the whole small mushrooms in a little oil or butter until all the moisture has evaporated (about 10 minutes) remove to an extra large bowl.
  • To the same skillet add in the ground beef with chili flakes, onions, garlic and red bell pepper; cook until beef is no longer pink and the veggies are tender (about 12-15 minutes).
  • Season with salt and pepper; drain any fat, then add to the bowl with the cooked mushrooms.
  • To the bowl with the beef and mushrooms, add in all the sauce and 1-1/2 cups grated mozzarella cheese (or to taste) toss well to combine.
  • Add in the cooked pasta and toss again.
  • Transfer the mixture to a greased casserole dish.
  • Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake for about 15-20 minutes, or until the casserole is heated through and bubbly.
  • Remove from oven and sprinkle about 1-1/2 cups mozzarella cheese on top.
  • Return to oven and continue to bake until the cheese has melted (about 5-6 minutes).
