Easy Beefaroni Bake



We cook so many homemade sauces around here, but  every once in awhile,  even we need a break! Do you want a semi-homemade recipe with very few ingredients?  This is one of my quick and easy recipes.


I happen to be a huge cheese lover, but if you aren't cut your cheese measurements in half.

I also recommend that you grate your own cheeses for best flavor always.
Be sure to buy real Parmesan to grate as well.

Ingredients

1 can Hunts Traditional Pasta Sauce 24 oz.
3/4 - 1 Lb. Ground Chuck
1 cup raw macaroni noodles
1/2 cup grated Mozzarella cheese, separated
1/2 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese, separated
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, separated
2 tablespoons real butter cut into quarters
Salt, pepper and granulated garlic for seasonings

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Cook the macaroni noodles in lightly salted water, as directed to just tender; Do not overcook.  Drain then add butter to melt stirring to coat all noodles.
Season ground beef lightly with salt, pepper and granulated garlic, brown, and drain if needed.
Add 1/4 cup of each of the cheeses, mixing well.
Open Sauce & add as much as you would like to your mixture; I used entire can.

*Optional, top with the remaining cheeses. Remember I love cheese, but if you don't like so much cut measurements in half* 

Bake 30 minutes or until bubbly hot and cheese is melted and browned to your liking.


4 - 6 Servings




Talk about a semi-homemade, quick & easy recipe!
Brings back memories of the school lunch menu for me!
Be sure to have some great bread and a crisp salad on the side!

Enjoy!
