Pasta Bake

This is one of our favorite and most versatile pasta dishes.  I use whatever meat I have on hand, chopped pepperoni, sausage, hamburger, or diced ham.  Sometimes I don’t add meat and it still tastes great!


1 pound of pasta

2- 24 ounce jars of your favorite spaghetti sauce

1 cup Parmesan cheese

4 cups (or 1-16 ounce bag) mozzarella cheese

Basil (several leaves, chopped) or a couple of tablespoons of dried basil

1 Tbsp. Italian seasoning

1 Tbsp. minced garlic

1 small onion, diced

1 pound of meat of your choice



Cook pasta according to package.  While pasta is cooking, saute meat, onions and garlic until meat is cooked and onions are tender.  In a 9 x 13 dish, empty 2 jars of spaghetti sauce, add Parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, basil, and Italian seasonings.  Stir together.  Add meat, onions and garlic.  Stir.  Drain pasta and add. Stir.  Cover and bake at 375 degrees for 1 hour.  Serve.
