Lasagna Casserole, August 5, 2015

I've had some "easy" or "quick" lasagnas that aren't any good at all, but this one is. It's more like a lasagna-flavored Johnny Marzetti. Just add a big salad and, if you like, some good bread (we like Pugliese).

Lasagna Casserole
1 package spaghetti sauce mix (1 1/2 oz. size)
6 oz. tomato paste
1 1/2 lb. ground beef, browned
1 tsp. salt
A good grinding of pepper
12 oz. macaroni, cooked
8 oz. pizza sauce
16 oz. ricotta
16 oz. shredded mozzarella
1/2 c. grated parmesan
1/4 c. chopped parsley

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Prepare spaghetti sauce according to directions on package, adding the tomato paste. Mix with ground beef, salt, & pepper. Simmer 20 minutes. Mix macaroni with pizza sauce, ricotta, & mozzarella. Add spaghetti sauce. Put in 13x9 baking pan. Top with parmesan & parsley. Bake 1/2 hour. Serves 8-10.
