Baked Mostaccioli

This recipe is one of those classic, crowd-pleasing recipes.  It's tried and true, and works for all occasions!  And, it's perfect to double, making it even easy to have an extra on hand in the freezer, or to share with a friend.

It's kind of funny the timing I am sharing this recipe.  We just had it this past weekend at my nephew's birthday party.  And prior to that, we had it for our traditional pasta dinner on Christmas Eve.  I tell you, it works for all occasions!

It's easy, too!  The only thing hard about this recipe, is remembering how to spell it.  I so feel like it should have an 'h' in there, rather than a second 'c'.

Baked Mostaccioli
1/2 package mostaccioli, cooked
1 1/2 lb ground round
1 medium onion, chopped
32 oz spaghetti sauce
8 oz tomato sauce
8 oz shredded mozzarella cheese
parmesan cheese
dried oregano

Brown beef and chopped onion.  
Drain grease.  
Add spaghetti sauce and tomato sauce.  
Simmer uncovered for 30 minutes.
Add cooked pasta to meat sauce, stir.
Place in a 9x13 baking dish.
Top with mozzarella cheese, and sprinkle with parmesan cheese, and dried oregano.
At this point, you can either bake right away, uncovered at 350 for 30 minutes, or refrigerate for up to 24 hours.
If refrigerating, remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to baking.
Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
Enjoy!
