This meal is one of my last minute meal. It is so filling and great meal with some salads on side.
I like to make my own pasta sauce, but feel free to use store bought. I add 1 pounds of ground beef or sausage to my sauce.
1 pound of macaroni cooked.
4 cups of pasta sauce
1 cup skim Ricotta Cheese
1 cup of Mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup of Parmesan cheese..to top it
Salt & pepper
In a large stove pan, mix the cooked pasta, pasta sauce and 3/4 cup of Mozzarella cheese.
Coat a 9-by-13 baking pan with cooking spray or olive oil and spread it on the pan.
Top it with the rest of Mozzarella and Parmesan cheese.
Cover with foil.
Heat your oven to 350 degrees F and bake the casserole for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake for another 10 minutes until the cheese on top is lightly browned and bubbly.
If you already have the sauce ready, it should take you only 15 minutes to prepare and 30 minutes to cook.
I love easy and great food. My sauce is packed with protein, mushrooms, egg plants, onions, garlic and of course tomatoes.
