Kat's Ridiculously Easy Cooking- Faux Lasagna

It tastes like lasagna with half the time and none of that fusing about with layering noodles. If you are a vegetarian you could totally leave out the hamburger and I bet it would be lovely to substitute in some sauteed zucchini (oooh I might do that myself...yummm). So, here ya go, another one of Kat's Ridiculously easy recipes.

8oz Rotini Twist Pasta (or whatever is on hand..mine was rotini and mac)
1 Jar Spaghetti Sauce (I do Prego Traditional)
1 lb hamburger
3 cups Mozzarella Cheese
(sometimes I add Pepperoni too)
Seasonings- I use black pepper, Mrs Dash tomato basil, and oregano

Brown hamburger meat w/ seasonings; drain. While browning meat cook pasta.
Jar of sauce in the pan with the hamburger meat (add more seasoning if desired). SImmer together for a bit.
Drain pasta. Combine pasta and sauce mixture in a 9X13 baking dish. Add 1 cup of cheese. If you are gonna add pepperoni now would be the time as well. Mix up.
Cover with other 2 cups of cheese. Bake 350 (180 C) until nice and bubbley.

Seriously, this is majorly yummy. Kid tested and approved as well. No seriously, if LaLa will eat it, then any kid will.
