Baked Fettuccine Pasta

Image

 

So this is something I made yesterday, continuing my pasta-baking trend. Even more delicious because I love spicy sauces! This one I managed to find my receipt so I can write down exactly (almost) what I bought for this.

Ingredients:

  • Hunt’s Spicy Pepper Tomato (or Pasta?) Sauce – $1.26
  • Lean ground beef (smallest package I could find) – $3.80
  • 1 package of No Name fettuccine pasta noodles – $1.38
  • A handful of spinach – $1.98 per bunch
  • 1 medium sized tomato, diced – sorry, I don’t know what kind it is 😦
  • Montreal steak spices
  • Salt and pepper
  • Cheese for topping

How-To:

Set oven for 375F.

Turn on the stove and brown the beef until thoroughly cooked (should be no pink). Soak up some of the residual fats and oils with a paper towel. Leave a little bit behind or it will be too dry. Add a few sprinkles of the steak spice and salt and pepper. Dice up the tomato and add them here. Set aside.

Boil a pot of water and add the whole package of noodles, and cook as per instructions. Drain out the water and add the sauce. When the sauce just starts to bubble, add the beef mixture and mix well. Turn off the heat.

In an oven-safe container, layer in half of the noodles. Then layer on the spinach. Then the rest of the noodles. Layer on the cheese!

Put into the oven uncovered for 25 minutes or until the cheese reaches your desired golden-ness.

Eat!

Serves 4-5, depending on how hungry you are.
