Beef and Vegetable Rigatoni


One-Dish Meals



2 Tbsp. olive oil 1/2 cup roughly chopped squash 1/2 cup roughly chopped zucchini 1/2 cup asparagus cut into 1-inch pieces 1/2 cup thinly sliced baby carrots 1 med. yellow onion, sliced into wedges 1 lb. ground beef, browned and drained 1 can diced tomatoes 2 cups tomato sauce Salt, pepper to taste Garlic powder to taste 1/2 Tbsp. dried oregano 4 cups rigatoni, cooked (allow pasta to remain a little firm) 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese


Heat oven to 350 F. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook vegetables in olive oil until cooked through but still a little firm. After meat is cooked and drained, stir into the vegetables. Add canned tomatoes (with liquid), tomato sauce, salt, pepper, garlic powder and oregano. Put cooked rigatoni into a large casserole dish. Pour meat and vegetable mixture over pasta. Top with cheese. Bake until cheese is lightly browned and the mixture bubbles around the edges.
