FOTM: Three Cheese Baked Mostaccioli
A wonderful cheesy pasta dish the whole family will be asking for again and again!
Three Cheese Baked Mostaccioli
Three Cheese Baked Mostaccioli is a recipe that was always a specialty of my sister-in-law Bobbie. I’m so fortunate to have gotten her recipe years ago. We lost our beloved Bobbie to breast cancer over 8 years ago – gosh, I can’t believe it’s been that long – but we think of Aunt Bobbie EVERY time we eat her WONDERFUL Mostacciloi.
This dish is becoming a Christmas tradition in our family. You can make this dish in advance, refrigerate, then cook before serving!! It’s a real crowd pleaser with friends and family, and serves a lot!
So grab your apron and lets get started – it’s really very easy!!
- 1 pound ground beef
- 1 pound salsitccia (if you can’t find this, you can use Italian sausage)
- garlic to taste
- 45 oz Ragu Old World Style Spaghetti sauce
- Italian seasoning to taste
- 1 box Mostaccioli Noodles
- 6 slices American Cheese
- 6 slices Mozzarella Cheese
- 3 slices Provolone Cheese
- Boil your noodles according to the box
- Brown the ground beef and salsittcia and garlic
- Add Raghu and Italian seasoning and let simmer for about 15-20 mins.
- Grease a 9×13 glass dish and layer
- 1/2 of your noodles
- tear up 3 pieces of American Cheese and
- 3 pieces of Mozzarella Cheese and place on top of noodles (**placing the cheese on the noodles is an VERY important secret step)
- Next pour 1/2 of your meat sauce over cheese and noodles
- Now add the other 1/2 of your noodles
- and top with other 3 slices of American cheese
- and 3 slices of Provolone Cheese
- Pour other 1/2 of your sauce over 2nd layer of cheese and noodles
- Then top with remaining mozzarella cheese
- Place in oven on 350 for 45 mins
