Inspired by our harvest.
This week we had our daughter, son-in-law and one of our “adopted” daughters over for dinner. Given the cold weather we’ve been having, a hot casserole seemed appropriate.
Lynn found a baked ziti recipe online and then modified it using what we had on hand. Turned out great so I thought we’d share. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
Saute ground beef, onion, and bell pepper in large skillet until onion is tender and beef is lightly browned.
Drain off excess fat; add Ro-tel, tomato sauce. basil, oregano, garlic, salt and pepper.
Stir well, then stir in pasta and 1 cup of the cheese; transfer to a 2 1/2 quart casserole dish.
Top with remaining cup of cheese and bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
