World's easiest pasta bake

When I was growing up my mom used to make this dish called "Johnny Marzetti."

Now, I don't have a clue who Johnny Marzetti is, but I do know WHAT it is.

It's a delicious tomato-based pasta bake that is probably one of the easiest, but homiest meals you can make on the fly.

The best part?

It only takes four ingredients! Seriously, only four!

Without further ado, make this awesome dish and proceed to watch everyone go back for seconds.


Johnny Marzetti
(serves 6-8)
Ingredients:
2/3 box of any kind of pasta your heart desires, we used rigatoni because they trap all the ooey marzetti goodness in the middle (a regular size one, I think they're like 12 or 14 ounces).
1 28 oz can of tomato puree (not paste, not sauce, not diced, PUREE, this is vital)
1 package of Lightlife ground "beef" (one of the rare occasions we use fake meat)
1/2 bag Daiya cheddar cheese

Directions:
Preheat your oven to 375.
Boil your pasta for 10 minutes.
Drain pasta and mix in tomato puree and ground "beef."
Pour into a 9X9 baking dish and top with Daiya.
Bake on 375 for 30 minutes (we always broil it for about 2-3 minutes to melt the cheese and get that crispy pasta bake goodness).

Chubby Vegan Mom is not accountable for the copious amount of Johnny Marzetti you might be possessed to consume.
