Pasta Bake

1 box pasta (whatever you have on hand - rotini, penne, macaroni)
1 jar (26 oz) pasta sauce
1 lb ground beef
1/2 onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, pressed
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Brown meat with onion and garlic, drain. Meanwhile, cook pasta according to directions for al dente (or 2 minutes shorter than recommended cook time), and drain.

Return pasta to pot, pour in pasta sauce, meat mixture and 1/4 cup of the parmesan cheese. Mix well and spread into a 13x9 inch dish (like the Rectangle Baker stone) and spread remaining cheeses over pasta mixture.

Bake for 20 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and dish is heated through.
