An easy to throw together, no-fuss meal when you fancy some comfort food! Serve with garlic bread.
Was ok!Never had much flavour,but i'm sure with a few tweaks it could be improved! - 19 Aug 2011
I guess it's about time that I rated this recipe since I've been using it for over a year!! I really love this pasta dish. It's easy to put together and it really stretches a pound of pasta when I have a bunch of hungry kids to feed (who are very happy when they find out we are having this). I did change just a couple of things. I omitted the onion because I'm too lazy to cut up an onion for just the few teaspoons called for in the recipe. I also omitted the salt and pepper because I didn't feel it needed it...I guess it depends on the flavor of which ever sauce you use. I lowered the temp of the oven to 350 degrees because it was sort of dry the first time I made it at 425 degrees. After I drain and rinse the pasta I put it back in the pan that I boiled it in, add the sauce and browned hamburg, then mix the whole thing together. I layer the pasta and cheese in an oblong casserole dish in the following way: 1/3 of the pasta mixture, 1/3 of the shredded mozzarella, another 1/3 of the pasta, followed by 1/3 of the cheese, then the last 1/3 of the pasta. I bake it for 20 min and then add the remaining cheese and return it to the oven for 5 minutes. It comes out almost like a "lazy man's" lasagne....YUMMY!! - 28 Feb 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
It was very easy to make and everyone loved it. The only thing to note is that if an oblong pan is not used to bake it in, then 2 cups of moz. cheese is plenty instead of the 3 cups called for in the recipe. I passed the recipe on to a friend and they used a round casserole dish which was just too small of a diameter for that much cheese. But they still loved it! - 26 Jul 2004 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
