This makes A TON so I break it up into three separate dinners when it's just the two of us. If you are having company, you will easily be able to feed six adults with this recipe.
Gather your supplies:
Box of penne noodles (or any noodles of your liking)
1 jar of pasta sauce
An entire bag (2 cups) of mozzarella cheese
1lb of ground beef
1lb of ground sausage
First thing is first, you need to start boiling the water for your noodles and begin browning your meat. This is where you will use both pounds of meat.
Set your meat aside once it's cooked and begin combining ingredients into your pasta pot. Empty the entire jar of pasta sauce and stir.
Now add all your meat and continue to stir. Lastly, stir in all but a little cheese (you will use the remainder as a topper before you put it in the oven. You'll notice I don't add any additional spices or random ingredients, because all the flavor is in the pasta sauce and the sausage. The sausage is definitely the key ingredient to this.
I use disposable loaf pans and fill all the way to the top. If you are not planning on eating it for dinner that night, cover with foil and freeze. However if you want to cook one, go ahead and use the extra mozzarella cheese and then bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 min.
Voila! There you have it, an easy dinner with leftovers that will taste just as fresh as the first batch! Let me know how this turns out for you. I hope you enjoy this easy meal that anyone can make!
