Dinner Tonight: Cheesy Baked Spaghetti



This is the perfect 'Case of the Monday's' meal. I don't want to go to the grocery store, we have a 4H meeting, a piano makeup lesson, a doctors appointment, we've been gone all weekend and need to unpack, and it's the Bachelor Season Finale. If ever there was a night for a fast meal - it's tonight! And I know I've said it many times, but 'fast' does not need to mean 'lacking nutrition'. Here's a super fast, organic, "pantry and freezer staple" kind of meal. 



Ingredients:
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 medium yellow or 1/2 large onion
  • 1 jar organic spaghetti sauce
  • 1 can organic cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 box frozen spinach, thawed, and drained
  • 1 box 100% whole wheat noodles
  • 8 oz (1 block) sharp white cheddar
Directions:

  1. Cook noodles 'al dente' according to package directions
  2. Meanwhile, cook ground beef over med-high heat, adding chopped onion halfway through
  3. Drain fat, and then add pasta sauce and spinach to ground beef mixture
  4. When noodles are cooked and drained, toss into pan with sauce and mix until incorporated
  5. Transfer noodles and sauce mixture to casserole dish
  6. Pour soup over top, and top with cheese
  7. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes, or until bubbly

 Apparently we like anything with "cheesy" in the title - here are a couple of other options for ya!
