Jazzy Noodle-Roni : Comfort food

Sometime you just need some comfort food. Sometimes you just don't have a lot in the fridge or pantry but the last thing you wanna do is put a bra on and haul your butt to Publix to get something to make a meal. So I present to you - Jazzy Noodle-Roni! Ohhhh....ahhhhh!

What you will need for this throw together meal that will please almost any crowd:
1 box of pasta - I used spiral because that was what I had available but any type would work!
1 jar of spaghetti sauce
1 pound of ground beef or turkey
8 slices of kraft cheese slices
Shredded Mozzarella

-Preheat your own to 325
-Boil water for your pasta, once it reaches a boil throw your noodles in and cook to al dente. 
-While your pasta is cooking, begin to brown the ground beef and season as you like. I used garlic and some Italian seasoning
-Once your pasta is cooked and strained, put back into original pan and add half the jar of spaghetti sauce and mix, adding ground beef once cooked. Mix well till evenly coated.
-Place half of noodle mixture into a 9x13 pan then place the slices of cheese on top of the noodles.
-Spread remaining noodle mixture over the top of the cheese slices as another layer.
-Pour remaining sauce over the top and spread with a spoon.
-Add as much (or as little) cheese as you'd like to the top. I was feeling like a fatty so I definitely used about 3/4 of the bag. 
-Bake for about 15-20 minutes or until the cheese on top is melted to a golden color.

Serve it up on a fun Chevron Plate, yes that is a paper plate cause that is totally how I roll, and you have a winner winner easy cook dinner with plenty of leftovers for lunch the next day.
