  • Grease the baking dish on the bottom and sides; set aside.
  • Brown the ground beef and onion in a large skillet; drain grease. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.

"This pasta dish was pretty good and very easy to make. My pasta got a little too soft. Next time I think I might try a smaller tube pasta and make sure I don't overcook it."
