Perfect Macaroni Casserole

1 pound lean ground beef $4.11
2 tablespoons canola oil $0.14
1 onion, diced   $0.47
3 cloves garlic, minced $0.03
1/2 bag rigatoni $0.99
1 can spaghetti sauce $1.99
3 cups shredded mozzarella cheese $3.75
Salt $0.01

Total   $11.49

1.) Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and grease a 9″ x 13″ casserole dish with non-stick cooking spray.

2.) Fill a large pot until it’s almost full with water and place on stove over high heat so that it comes to a boil. When boiling, add the salt and then add the pasta. Cook until it’s just el dente and drain. When drained, place the pasta in the casserole dish.

3.) In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add onion and garlic and saute until the onion is clear. Add beef and brown.

4.) Once the beef has been browned, drain. Then add the beef to the casserole dish as well. Add the can of spaghetti sauce and mix very well so that everything is combined.

5.) Spread the mozzarella cheese over the top of the casserole and place in the oven for about 10 – 15 minutes until the cheese is entirely melted and brown.

6.) Serve and enjoy!
