Pasta With Ground Beef and Tomato

Recipe by MTpockets
READY IN: 40mins


  • 12
    onion, chopped
  • 12
    ounces pasta, any kind (I like Rotini or Bowtie)
  • 1
    (14 1/2 ounce) can diced Italian tomatoes (undrained)
  • 1
    (15 ounce) can tomato sauce
  • 1
    (10 3/4 ounce) can tomato soup
  • 1
    teaspoon italian seasoning
  • 12
    tablespoon dried parsley
  • 14
    teaspoon pepper
  • 18
    teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 12
    teaspoon garlic powder (or omit and use 2 Cloves of minced)
  • 1
    (8 ounce) package shredded five-cheese Italian cheese blend (or cheese of your choice)


  • Preheat oven to 350'.
  • In a medium skillet, add beef and onion and cook until beef is no longer pink and onion is translucent.
  • Drain off fat and set aside.
  • While beef is browning, in a large pot, cook pasta according to package directions. (I usually cook it a minute less than directed because it will cook while in the oven as well).
  • When pasta is cooked drain and add rest of the ingredients to the pot, reserving 1/4 of the shredded cheese (about 1/2 cup) and blend well.
  • Transfer above mixture to a large buttered baking dish and spread evenly.
  • Top with remaining 1/4 of cheese.
  • Cover and bake at 350' for 20-30 minutes. Uncover the last 5-10 minutes and bake until hot and bubbly and cheese on top is melted.
