Cook: 30 mins
Total: 55 mins


  • 1 lb macaroni pasta
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 8 oz mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 lbs ground beef, or swap 1 lb for Italian sausage
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 14 oz tomato sauce, (2 cans)
  • 14 oz tomatoes, (1 can) diced and drained
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp Italian herbs
  • 1 pinch sugar
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese, divided
  • 2 cups Italian blend cheese, divided


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

  2. Bring a large pot of water to boil for the macaroni. Cook the macaroni for about 7 minutes until on the firmer side of al dente. Drain the pasta, then return it to the pot and set aside.

  3. In the meantime, heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onion, green pepper, and mushrooms to the skillet and saute for about 5 minutes until softened. Add the ground beef and cook until no pink remains. Drain the fat off the beef mixture, then season to taste with salt and pepper.

  4. Add the tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, garlic, oregano, Italian herbs, and sugar to the beef mixture. Allow it to simmer for 5 or so minutes, stirring occasionally.

  5. Carefully pour the beef mixture into the pot with the noodles and stir to combine. Add 1 cup of cheddar cheese and 1 cup of Italian blend to the mix. Pour the mixture into a 9x13-inch casserole dish. Top with the remaining cheese.

  6. Bake for 30 minutes, or until cheese is golden and melted. Top with parsley for serving. Enjoy!
