Italian Pasta Bake

I adapted this recipe from Heavenly Homemakers Blog.  This is an easy pasta bake that my family really enjoys.  -Kristin

1 pound ground beef
1/4 cup diced onion
diced zucchini (opt.)
4 cups tomato sauce
2 cups water
2 Tablespoons dried basil
1 Tablespoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon salt
10 ounce pasta, any shape
2 cups of shredded mozzarella or any other kind your family likes
  • Brown meat, onion and diced zucchini together, drain grease and set aside. 
  • Meanwhile, bring tomato sauce, water, basil, oregano, garlic powder and salt to a boil. 
  • Stir in pasta and boil until tender.  Do not drain, the pasta should absorb the liquid!
  • Mix in cooked meat.  
  • Spread mixture into a 9×13 casserole dish and top with cheese. 
  •  Bake uncovered at 350° for 25 minutes or until cheese is melted and the casserole is heated through.
