When I pick a recipe to share with you guys I always make sure it’s something that we love. This recipe for Baked Beef and Mushroom Rotini is one of those recipes that I’ll be going back to over and over.
This recipe is company worthy. It’s got that rich tomato flavor that everyone loves. Plus if you serve it with salad, a side like my recipe for Oven Roasted Green Beans, and fresh crispy bread your guests will have more than enough to eat. They also will declare you the best cook they know.
I recommend browning the beef in a large pot or dutch oven. This will make it possible to combine the other ingredients together. I’ve tried making this in a large skillet and it was a close call with getting everything mixed together in the pan and not on the floor. Doing the dishes is enough work without having to mop up a big mess too, right?
Once the pasta comes out of the oven I garnish with parsley flakes and shredded parmesan. This casserole is almost better the next day so be sure to pack up some leftovers for lunch.
