Reasons Why You Should Try This Ground Beef Rotini Bake

  • First and foremost, this recipe is scrumptious and so satisfying with that blend of seasoned tomato sauce surrounded by gooey strands of mozzarella cheese, rotini and ground beef. This is an oven meal that brings smiles to the faces from the delectable aroma alone let alone once the family and friends taste it.
  • Secondly, it offers fewer calories for those dieters that long for traditional pizza. After all, this pizza bake has no crust.
  • In addition, it is extra rich in its protein and nutritional content. The reason is there is both ground beef and cheese in this recipe. The spaghetti sauce has tomatoes that are a wonderful source of antioxidants such as lycopene and potassium, besides vitamins like B, E and C.
  • Furthermore, this cheesy ground beef pizza bake is simple to prepare. Basically, it involves just browning the beef and draining off excess fat. However, I use grass-fed beef that doesn’t leave me with a pot of grease like I used to have to drain when using regular ground beef from the supermarket. Afterwards, you just boil the pasta and cook the sauce ingredients before blending and later layering the ingredients before baking.
