Ingredients

How to make it

  • Brown ground beef, chopped onion, minced garlic and Italian seasoning in a large skillet over medium heat. Drain excess fat, if necessary, and reserve.
  • Cook chopped spinach as directed on the package; drain, and reserve the liquid. Add enough water to the reserved spinach water to make 1 cup. Combine spinach liquid with the spaghetti sauce, tomato sauce, tomato paste, and salt and pepper, and add to the browned meat and vegetables. Simmer for about 10 minutes to thoroughly combine meat with the sauces.
  • Meanwhile, cook the elbow or shell macaroni as directed on the package, drain, and reserve. Combine the cooked spinach with the macaroni in a large mixing bowl. Add cheese, bread crumbs, eggs, and oil to the spinach and macaroni, stirring from the bottom to combine all ingredients.
  • Spread the macaroni mixture into a 9-inch by 13-inch oven-proof baking dish.
  • Cover with the meat sauce, and bake in a pre-heated 350-F degree oven for about a half an hour.
  • This hearty one-dish meal goes perfectly with a leafy green salad and garlic toast.

    Clare - make your own Italian seasoning - its equal parts basil and oregano - add some thyme dried and a hint of rosemary - use dried
