Ingredients

  • 1

    tablespoon olive oil

  • 1/4

    cup chopped onion

  • 1

    clove garlic

  • 1

    pound lean ground beef

  • 4

    cups tomato sauce

  • 1

    package rotini

  • 3

    cups shredded mozzarella cheese

  • 1/4

    cup grated parmesan cheese

  • 1/2

    pound mushrooms, sliced

Directions

In large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; saute onion and garlic until softened and translucent, about 3 minutes. Add beef; cook, breaking up with spoon, until no longer pink, in about 10 minutes. Stir in tomato sauce and mushrooms; reduce heat to medium and simmer until thickened, about 10 minutes. Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta for 2 minutes less than package instructions indicated (pasta will be slightly undercooked). Drain, return to pot. Toss together pasta, meat sauce, 2 cups of the mozzarella cheese and 2 tablespoons of the parmesan cheese. Spread in 13x9-inch casserole dish; sprinkle with remaining mozzarella and parmesan cheeses. Bake in 350°F oven until cheese is melted and pasta is bubbly, about 30 minutes.
