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!!
