I use any pasta I have on hand. If I have leftover pasta I use that too. Along with my quick sauce recipe.

Ingredients

1 lb
pasta of your choice, cooked aldente(slightly hard)
quick sauce
ricotta
mozzerella
italian cheese, freshly grated
1
egg
1/2 lb
ground beef
1 clove
garlic, crushed
1 small
onion, chooped fine
lots of room in your belly

Step-By-Step

1brown the ground beef, allow juices to evaporate and add onion, garlic and salt and pepper to taste

2have your quick sauce simmering on another burner

3Cook pasta accordingly, but aldente, the pasta will cook more when baked, if you like a softer pasta, by all means cook it longer, drain-place back in pot and add some sauce just enough to coat the pasta

4While pasta is cooking in a bowl add your ricotta, mozzerella, egg, cheese salt and pepper to tatse. I add the egg along with mozzerella to hold the ricotta while baking (shouldn't be runny).

5In a baking dish add some sauce to the bottom and start layering
some pasta-all the ground beef-small amount of sauce spread over beef-pasta-ricotta mix-rest of the pasta.
Add sauce on top and top with grated cheese and mozzerella.
Bake until you have a nice golden color.
