Recipe Directions for Baked Pasta Casserole

  2. Brown and crumble ground beef with diced onion. Drain well and rinse if desired.

  3. Add jar of spaghetti sauce (lite/lowfat/healthy versions will lower calories, but this recipe calculates based on regular Bertolli Tomatoe & Basil sauce) and a can of diced tomatoes to the ground beef and simmer while the pasta cooks or however long you wish to simmer.

  4. When pasta is cooked, drain well. Combine pasta and sauce in casserole dish or dishes. Toss to mix well.

  5. If desired, add spoonfuls of low-fat or fat free cottage cheese and fold in to mix slightly.

  6. Top with low fat shredded cheese. Bake in hot oven (400f or whatever temperature you are using to bake other menu items is fine) till cheese melts and begins to brown slightly.
