Four Pasta Beef Bake

4 cups uncooked pasta (4 different shapes)
1 lb ground beef or ground turkey
1 medium green pepper, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
1 c. sliced fresh mushrooms (I don't use these)
2 jars meatless spaghetti sauce (26 oz each)
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 cups (16 oz) shredded mozzarella cheese

Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, cook the beef, green peppers, onions and mushrooms over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain.

Drain pasta and place in a large bowl; stir in the beef mixture, the spaghetti sauce and eggs. Transfer to a 9x13 pan. Top with cheese and any remaining sauce. Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes or until heated through.

NOTE: This recipe freezes well, so you could double the recipe for a freezer meal.
