We've affectionately nicknamed this lasagna-inspired casserole "New Baby Pasta"--it's exactly the type of freezer friendly comfort food you'd want to bring to a friend who's a new parent. (In fact, we created this cheesy dinner bake to hold up in the freezer, so it's guaranteed to taste just as good in a couple months as it would if you made it tonight.) With plenty of hearty beef, gooey cheese and bubbly pasta sauce, it's one of those satisfying, borderline-magical 13x9-inch meals that never seems to end!
Use a 13x9-inch foil pan to make and take the frozen casserole to someone. Remember to include the heating directions.
Use nonstick foil to cover casserole for convenience.
Garnish with chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) or regular parsley just before serving.
