How to Make Johnny Marsala


  • 1Preheat oven to 350. Grease a 13 x 9 casserole dish.
  • 2Brown the ground beef and onion seasoning with salt & pepper, garlic powder & italian seasoning. ( I like to "mash" my meat so you don't have big chunks. I use my potato masher.)
  • 3Cook the shells according to package directions, drain.
  • 4While the shells are draining, in the warm pot you cooked the shells in, mix together the sauce and the soup. Add the meat mixture. Then add the shells mixing everything together.
  • 5Pour into the greased casserole dish. Sprinkle the cheese over the top. Bake for about 35 minutes or until cheese is melted.
  • 6Enjoy!
