This Ground Beef Pasta Bake is quick to make, and I think the whole family prefers it over a classic Spaghetti!
 
You are welcome to substitute the pasta for a gluten-free and the recipe will still work well. When I first started making this recipe was when I was gluten free, and I never loved the taste of the pasta so this helped hide its flavor!

You can also experiment with this hamburger pasta casserole by switching up the type of pasta sauce you use. I like the Ragu Garden Combination, but you can use whatever type you like.
 
If you want to make this a more “from scratch” recipe, you can use our Copycat Olive Garden Spaghetti Sauce Recipe and make your own sauce to use in this pasta bake.
 
You can also play around with the shape of the pasta. Whatever you choose, your family is sure to love it and you are sure to love that it is so quick and easy to make for any weeknight dinner.
