Beefaroni from @TinaKashian1

Hello from TINA KASHIAN! Winter is here and I enjoy comfort food. Growing up, beefaroni was on one of my favorite dishes. Now that I’m a mother, I’m always looking for different ways to use ground beef. I enjoy meatballs like most people, but I was searching for something different. I found this dish on online at “allrecipes” and modified it. You can use any package of pasta you have in your cupboard. I had pinwheels and it added to the fun of the dish. It’s not difficult to make and is good as a leftover dish.


Ingredients:

1 pound ground beef

2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

1 24-ounce jar of marinara sauce

1 16-ounce package pasta (anything you have on hand)

Salt and pepper to taste


 You can use elbow macaroni or any fun pasta that you have in your cupboard. 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook the ground beef in a large skillet over med-high heat until evenly browned. Drain the fat. 


 

 While the ground beef is cooking, bring a large pot of water to boil. Add pasta and cook until tender. Transfer to a large casserole dish and add the cooked ground beef, marinara sauce, and Cheddar cheese. Bake for thirty minutes until hot and bubbly.
