Ingredients

  • 12 ounces egg noodles uncooked
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 1/4 lbs lean ground beef I use 90% lean
  • 1 onion finely chopped
  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 16 ounces canned tomato sauce
  • 15 ounce can diced tomatoes drained, I prefer to use the small diced (petite cut) variety
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • cooking spray

Instructions

  • Bring a pot of salted water to a boil; add the egg noodles and cook according to package directions. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.
  • While the noodles are cooking, heat the olive oil in a large pan over medium high heat.
  • Add the ground beef to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes, breaking up the meat with a spatula.
  • Add the onion and garlic to the pan and cook for an additional 5 minutes, or until onion has softened and beef is cooked through. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Add the tomato sauce, tomatoes and Italian seasoning to the beef and stir to combine.
  • Drain the noodles and add to the pan with the beef; toss to combine.
  • Pour the beef and noodle mixture into a 9"x13" baking pan that's been coated in cooking spray. Top with cheddar cheese.
  • Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with parsley and serve.
