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

Prep:

20 Min

Cook:

40 Min

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

Directions Step-By-Step

1
brown the ground beef, allow juices to evaporate and add onion, garlic and salt and pepper to taste
2
have your quick sauce simmering on another burner
3
Cook 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
4
While 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).
5
In 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.
