Cooking Method

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.


In a stockpot, combine the tomatoes, tomato sauce, water, onions, peppers, garlic, parsley, Italian seasoning, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, seasoning salt, sugar, and bay leaves. 

  1. Bring to a boil over high heat, and then reduce the heat and let simmer, covered, for 1 hour. 

  2. Crumble the ground beef in a large skillet. 

  3. Cook over medium-high heat until fully cooked, with no pink color remaining. 

  4. Drain the fat from the meat, and then add the ground beef to the stockpot. 

  5. Simmer for 20 more minutes.

Cook the pasta according to the package directions. 


Cover the bottom of a 13 by 9 by 2-inch pan with sauce. 

  1. Add a layer of pasta and then a little less than of each cheese; repeat the layers, ending with the sauce. 

  2. Bake in the oven for 30 minutes.

  3. Top the casserole with the remaining cheese, return it to the oven, and continue to cook until the cheese is melted and bubbly, about 5 more minutes. 

  4. Cut into squares before serving.
