"This is a delicious pasta dish that is very easy to make. I like to use spiral noodles, but this recipe can be made with any shaped pasta. Serve with a salad and warm bread if desired." — Pamela Saunier

lean ground beef
1 (32 ounce) jar
fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 1/4 cups
Italian-style stewed tomatoes
shredded mozzarella cheese
I made this recipe tonight, and my husband loved it. It reminded us of lasagna. I used medium shells for the pasta. I added onion and garlic powder to the meat. I added 1 14.5oz can diced tomatoes and only 1/2 jar of sauce. I sprinkled mozzarella cheese on top. I will definitley make this again. Thanks!
This was easy, but we found it a little bland. It wasn't bad, we ate it and I will probably have it for leftovers, but I think it needs some spicing up, maybe some onion and garlic, a little more salt. It was okay tasting. It might even matter the brand of Italian tomatoes and sauce that is used how much flavor you get.
My husband and I loved this and ate for the leftovers for the next day's lunch and dinner. I did tweak it a little, since reading that some people thought it a bit bland. I first sauteed onions and bell peppers in olive oil until it started to carmelize before adding the beef to brown. I then seasoned the beef with garlic, salt, pepper, and italian seasoning. I used a spaghetti sauce that had lots of veggies in it, and used diced tomatoes instead of stewed. I also used penne pasta. It was soooo flavorful and was great with crusty bread.
I used the spiral noodles as you suggested. This was a really quick and easy recipe that was a hit with my husband. I added some shredded cheddar cheese with the mozzarella cheese on top. I also added a half chopped green bell pepper and half chopped onion for extra taste.
Followed the recipie closely, and my family enjoyed it and are looking forward to the leftovers. Next time I would add some garlic, peppers and onions. It is quick and easy!
My family loved this recipe, and they are picky eaters. I did not add the mushrooms but put in 1 cup of water with the uncooked noodles and put it all in my crockpot on low for 6 hours, turned out superb.
Easy lunch recipe! I took the advice of "cook from Cape Cod" = added some garlic, peppers and onions (great addition!!). I liked the tomatoes in this recipe and highly recommend that they're included. Although I used the hamburger- I think the use of Italian sausage would be a better ingrediant! Thanks for the easy recipe Pamela!
This dish was great. I fried the mushrooms with onions first, then added it the ground beef and spaghetti sauce. I'll definitely make this one again.
