Three-Sisters Casserole

Pasta casserole is always a hit.

Three-Sisters Casserole


  • 1.5 lbs ground beef
  • 2 qts pasta sauce (click if you need a recipe for the sauce)
  • 16 oz pasta of your choice, e.g. penne, wide egg noodles, rotini or farfalle
  • 1 Tbl butter
  • 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 8 oz mild cheddar cheese, shredded


  • Brown the beef until it is cooked through.
  • Cook the pasta al dente, drain and return to the saucepan.  Toss with butter and Parmesan cheese.
  • Heat pasta sauce and add the ground beef.  This basically makes Bolognese sauce.
  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  • Layer the pasta and the sauce into a casserole dish: First 1/3 of the sauce, then half the pasta, then another third of sauce, then the rest of the pasta, then the rest of the sauce.
  • Sprinkle with shredded cheese.
  • Cover with lid and place in the oven.  Bake for about half an hour or until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
  • Enjoy with a side dish of green beans, or try the cole slaw we suggested yesterday as it goes very well with this dish as well.
