Noodle Casserole Recipes

A delicious one dish meal, that tastes even better the next day. I baked it on the toaster oven so as not to heat up the kitchen. You can use any ground meat or pasta shape you have on hand. If you purchase all the items on sale this is also very economical.


Prep Time: 30 minutes

Cook Time: 40 minutes

Total Time: 70 minutes

Yield: 4 servings

Source: Taste of Home


  • 1-1/2 cup uncooked pasta
  • 1 lb lean ground beef
  • 1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms, divided
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 1 tsp dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp onion powder
  • salt to taste
  • 1/8 tsp pepper
  • 1 can (15 ounces) tomato sauce
  • 1/2 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese, divided
  • 2 Tbsp grated Parmesan cheese, divided


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Cook pasta according to package directions for al dente; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet coated with cooking spray, cook and crumble beef with 1/2 cup mushrooms, onion and green pepper over medium-high heat until no longer pink, 5-7 minutes.
  3. Drain the beef.
  4. Stir in seasonings and tomato sauce; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered for 15 minutes.
  5. Place pasta in an 8-in. square baking dish coated with cooking spray or lined with foil.
  6. Top with meat sauce and remaining mushrooms. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup mozzarella cheese and 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese.
  7. Bake, covered for 35 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with remaining cheeses. Bake until heated through and cheese is melted, 5-10 minutes.

This is one kind of pasta casserole I made once for a potluck. It's just my take on a common meal. You can make it vegetarian or meat-based, which is what was made here.

Does anyone have a recipe for Muffaletta pasta? I know it contains items that are in a muffaletta sandwich, but it is baked in a casserole dish.

Thank you.

I found a recipe at this website

Muffaletta Pasta Bake

This is a dish I adapted from the famous sandwich from New Orleans. I simply replaced Muffalatta bread with pasta.
1 lb. penne pasta
1 lb. grated mozzarella cheese
1 lb. smoked ham (black forest is best) cut thick
1/2 lb. genoa salami cut thick
1/2 - 1 cup (depending on your preference) olive salad mix ( to order)
toasted sesame seeds (optional)

Cook pasta according to package directions. Cool. Mix in cheese, ham and salami cut in inch squares, olive salad mix, and half of cheese. Put in a casserole dish. Top with remaining cheese and sesame seeds. Bake until cheese is melted and center is hot.
