Recipe Notes

  • Try this recipe with ground turkey instead of ground beef.
  • Use your favorite spaghetti sauce for this recipe. We're sure the Amish made homemade tomato sauce for this recipe, but using jarred saves time.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Cook the ground beef and onion in a skillet until cooked through, about 5 to 6 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Stir in the spaghetti sauce. 
  3. Add the cooked pasta. Toss to combine. 
  4. Pour the mixture into a large casserole dish. Sprinkle with the cheese. Bake in a preheated 350-degree F oven for about 25 to 30 minutes.
