Ground beef, mushrooms and a hefty dollop of sour cream make this easy pasta bake extra hearty.

ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pounds lean ground beef
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can (14 1/2 ounces) stewed tomatoes, cut up
  • 1 jar (14 ounces) meatless spaghetti sauce
  • 1 can (4 ounces) mushroom stems and pieces, undrained
  • 8 ounces uncooked small shell pasta
  • 2 cups (16 ounces) reduced-fat sour cream
  • 11 slices (8 ounces) reduced-fat provolone cheese
  • 1 cup (4 ounces) shredded part-skim mouncezarella cheese

directions

In a nonstick skillet, cook the beef, onions and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the tomatoes, spaghetti sauce and mushrooms. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions; drain.

Place half of the pasta in an ungreased 13 x 9 x 2-inch baking dish. Top with half of the meat sauce, sour cream and provolone cheese. Repeat layers. Sprinkle with mozzarella cheese.

Cover and bake at 350 degrees F for 35 to 40 minutes. Uncover; bake 10 minutes longer or until the cheese begins to brown. Let stand for 10 minutes before cutting.
