Ingredients:

  • 16 ounces ziti or other large tubular pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 4 to 6 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1 jar (25 ounces) spaghetti sauce

Cook pasta in boiling water following package directions. Drain and rinse with hot water.

In a large skillet, heat olive oil over medium heat. Brown the ground beef for about 5 minutes. Add onion, green pepper, and mushrooms and continue cooking, stirring frequently, until beef is no longer pink and vegetables are tender.

Spread half of the pasta in the prepared baking dish. Spoon half of the sauce over the pasta, then top with half of the cheese. Repeat layers with the remaining pasta, sauce, and cheese.

my family loved this!, Member justinsmommom

I have a large family and this made a lot. My family likes more seasoning so I added garlic powder, onion powder, crushed red pepper flakes and Italian seasonings. It was delicious!
