Don’t you just love a meal that lasts more than one night? This dish saves great and is the best for those busy weeknights when you have little time to cook. It’s fairly basic and cheap to make, and many of the ingredients you probably already have on hand.

Ingredients:

  • 20 oz frozen cheese tortellini

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×13 inch casserole dish.
  3. In a large skillet, add ground beef, Italian seasoning, onion powder, and pepper. Brown the ground beef and drain the excess grease.
