In large skillet heat oil & brown ground beef in this on medium high, crumbling with fork, til pink color disappears. Stir in soup mix, stewed tomatoes & canned (or homemade) spaghetti sauce. Heat thorough, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat.
Spread about 1/2 cup of the sauce evenly over bottom of Pam-sprayed deep oven dish. (Mine measure* about 9" in diameter & 3 1/2" deep.)

Repeat the layers to fill the bowl in this manner. Sauce--broken noodles--Sauce-- Cheese. With the last layer of the broken noodles, use both of your hands to press down on the mixture to make room for the last addition of sauce & cheese.
