Halloween Casserole

Hello peeps!!  Long time, no write.  I have been continuing my dieting.  Got a long ways to go but I will get there.  Since it is Halloween I thought I would cook a Halloween Casserole.  I found some of the cutest pasta shapes so I decided to use it in a casserole.

I measured 2 cups of pasta into a pan of boiling water.  I boiled it for 10 minutes, drained it and poured it into a greased baking dish.  Then I cooked 1 pound of ground beef, drained it and added it to the pasta.  You could add Italian sausage instead of ground beef.   Then I mixed in 2 cups of marinara sauce.  I had some homemade sauce in the freezer but the canned marinara sauce would work just as well.  I mixed everything up and put the baking dish in a 350 F oven for 30 minutes.  Then I put grated cheddar cheese on top and put it back in the oven for 5 minutes.  You could also use mozzarella cheese.

It turned out really good.  Everyone seemed to like it.

I served it up with a nice fresh green salad.  Oh and don’t forget to sprinkle some Parmesan cheese on top too!  Happy Halloween!!
