Momma's Pasta bake

This is one of my favorite go to meals for when we have a busy week. I love things that I can make it and we can eat on it for a few days. It just seems to make the evenings so much easier when you are not stuck in the kitchen all night long. Plus that means less kids in the kitchen with their toys to step on!
My mother gave me this quick fix meal a few years ago and ever since then, we have been eating it for dinner quite a bit.

The ingredient list is short and simple (which is another thing I love)
1 box pasta noodles (any type of small noodle works)
2 Cans diced tomatoes
2 lbs. ground beef
1/4 c. chopped onion
2 cloves garlic
mozzarella cheese

Cook noodles according to box directions. Cook the meat with the onion and the garlic till browned. Once browned added to cooked noodles, add in tomatoes.

Mix all together and put in baking dish. Slice up the cheese and put on top.

Put in oven at 350° for about 20 min. Just long enough to melt the cheese. (I also added some fresh Parm. you can't go wrong with cheese at our house)

And then enjoy!! It is so yummy, I hope you can enjoy it too!
