Pasta Bake for Two

1/2 pound ground beef

1/4 cup chopped onion

1 clove garlic, minced

Salt and pepper

1 3/4 cups prepared pasta sauce, any

flavor

1/4 cup water

1/2 package (9 ounces) cheese or

vegetable-filled refrigerated

tortellini or ravioli

1/4 cup shredded Italian cheese blend

Chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Brown ground beef with onion and garlic in large nonstick skillet over medium heat 8 to 10 minutes or until beef is no longer pink, breaking up into 3/4 inch crumbles. Pour off drippings; season with salt and pepper, as desired. Stir in pasta sauce and water.

Spray two 2-cup baking dishes with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange refrigerated pasta evenly on bottom of each baking dish. Spoon beef mixture evenly over pasta; sprinkle cheese evenly over beef mixture. Cover baking dishes with aluminum foil. Bake in 350-degree oven 30 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 5 minutes. Top with parsley as desired.
