I made an interesting dish the other night with just a few ingredients I had in the pantry. I have been trying to use up all my things that have been hanging around so I can replace them with new things, and this meal just kind of came together.
My family loves lasagna, but it takes SO long to prepare. This meal is a spin off on lasagna and allows you to get that same flavor, but cuts the cooking time in half!
P’sagna (pasta lasagna)
1 box of penne pasta
1/2 pound of ground beef, cooked and drained
2 cans of Hunts Fire Roasted Tomatoes with garlic
1 block of mozzarella cheese, shredded
1 tablespoon of italian seasoning
salt and pepper for taste
parmesean cheese for garnish
Cook ground beef and drain. Set aside.
In a food processor or blender, puree your cans of tomatoes until it resembles spaghetti sauce. Add salt and pepper for taste and the tablespoon of Italian seasoning. Mix together once more then remove and set aside.
Cook the noodles according to package directions. Drain then add the tomato sauce and hamburger meat. Mix together well and place in a 9×13 pan.
Once you have put the noodle mixture in a 9×13 pan, cover with the shredded mozzarella cheese and put in a 350 degree preheated oven until cheese melts and is brown and bubbly.
Sprinkle parmesean cheese on top and serve!
