Creamy Pasta Casserole
 
This quick and easy dish uses cream cheese to add an extra creamy texture to everyday pasta.
Ingredients
  • 1 (12 oz.) package bow tie or penne pasta
  • ½ (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (24 oz.) jar pasta sauce
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • ½ tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1 lb. ground beef
  • 1 onion, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ c. shredded mozzarella cheese
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Boil pasta until cooked through, yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain and return pasta to pot.
  3. Melt cream cheese into the pasta. Stir pasta sauce, Italian seasoning, and red pepper flakes into the pasta mixture.
  4. Heat a skillet over medium heat. Cook and stir ground beef 2 to 3 minutes. Add onion and garlic to the beef, and continue cooking until the meat is completely browned, about 5 minutes more. Stir beef mixture into the pasta mixture.
  5. Pour pasta-and-beef mixture into a 3-quart casserole dish. Sprinkle mozzarella cheese over top.
  6. Bake in preheated oven until the mozzarella cheese melts, 5 to 10 minutes.
