Shirley Benson


1 lb ground beef
1 (32 oz) jar of your favorite spaghetti sauce
1 (16 oz) jar alfredo sauce
1 lb penne pasta (or ziti or rigatoni)
yellow onion, diced
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

Preheat oven to 350F degrees.

Spray a 9 x 13 baking dish with nonstick spray.
Prepare pasta according to directions.

In a medium sauce pan, brown ground beef with onion (if using).
After beef is brown and crumbled, drain excess grease.
Put back in pot and pour in spaghetti sauce.

Keep mixture on low until pasta is done.
When pasta is finished, drain excess water from pasta. You want the pasta as dry as possible.
Put pasta back in large pot (with heat off) and pour in jar of alfredo sauce. Combine until thoroughly coated.

Pour pasta mixture into bottom of 9 x 13 dish.
Cover pasta with spaghetti sauce mixture.


Sprinkle top with mozzarella cheese.
Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 15 minutes.

Remove foil and bake for another 15 minutes until cheese is melted and bubbly. Let rest for about 5 minutes after taking out of oven.
