Mostaccioli Recipe (the short version)

At the request of several readers, here is the quick version of mostaccioli:

CLASSIC BAKED MOSTACCIOLI

1 lb. ground beef
1/2 c. chopped onion
2 1/2 c. meatless spaghetti sauce
1/2 c. water
8 oz. (3 1/3 c.) mostaccioli noodles (or penne, I suppose if your grocery store is LAME)
6 oz. Mozzarella cheese
2 tbsp. Parmesan cheese

In skillet cook meat and onion until meat is browned and onion is tender, stirring to break meat into chunks. Stir in spaghetti sauce and water; simmer 10 minutes. Meanwhile, cook mostaccioli as directed; drain. Mix the sauce with mostaccioli in a 9x13 pan. Sprinkle Parmesan over mixture. Then put Mozzarella cheese on top. Bake at 375 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes. Serve with garlic bread.

Makes 4 to 6 servings.

YUM YUM YUM and what am I supposed to bring on saturday since I'll be saving so much money on not bringing beer for myself???

Don't bring anything! I may, however, request to borrow your large stockpot later since I will be making enough noodles to feed 40! Holy shit, what was I thinking?

Tessie: FYI - you have officially been "let in" to the world of Southside STL cuisine, which has some of the best Italian food in the country. This is a Southside wedding staple. YAY! You're almost a St. Louisan. Now, if we can just find a way to get you some toasted ravioli from The Hill...
