500g (16 ounces) pasta, any variety

1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

1 onion, finely chopped

2 cups garlic, crushed

750g (1 1/2 pounds) lean ground beef

600g (22.6oz) condensed tomato soup

600g (22.6oz) condensed mushroom soup

250 ml (8.45 fl oz) milk

Salt and black pepper, according to preference

1/2 cup paprika

1/2 cup dried parsley


Begin by setting your oven to 180°C (350°F) and readying your baking dish with a coat of cooking spray.

Following the package's guidelines, cook the pasta in a large pot until it's al dente.

As your pasta is boiling, heat olive oil in a pan. Once it's hot, add the chopped onions and crushed garlic, letting them soften. Introduce the ground beef to this mix, cooking until it's no longer pink.

After draining your pasta, place it back into the pot. Incorporate the beef mixture, the two types of condensed soup, and milk. Mix well and season it using salt and pepper as per your liking.

Pour this hearty mixture into the baking dish you prepared earlier. For a burst of color and flavor, sprinkle the top with paprika and dried parsley.

Place your dish into the oven, allowing it to bake for about 25-30 minutes.

Once done, let it sit for a few minutes before serving. Dive in and relish the warmth and heartiness of this dish.

Bon Appétit!
