Ingredients

  • 2 C tri-color rotini pasta
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lb ground beef 93% lean
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 Tbsp tomato paste
  • 28 oz diced tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp dijon mustard
  • 2.5 C shredded cheese mozzarella and cheddar blend
  • 1/4 C dill pickles diced
  • yellow mustard optional

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350℉. Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. In a large pot, bring salted water to a boil. Add the rotini pasta, and cook until al dente, approximately 8 minutes. 
  • While the pasta is cooking, heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions and cook approximately 5 minutes, or until soft and translucent. Stir in the garlic, and cook for 30 seconds. Add the ground beef and cook until browned. Season with salt and pepper. 
  • Add tomato paste, diced tomatoes, and dijon mustard to the skillet, and cook for 2 minutes, or until slightly thickened.
  • Pour the meat mixture into the well drained pasta, and mix well. Add ½ c cheese to the pasta and meat mixture, and stir well.
  • Spread mixture into the prepared baking dish. Top with the remaining cheese, and bake until the cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Top with a drizzle of yellow mustard and the diced pickles before serving.
