Macaroni Pasta Dish

Okay so this is super easy and I actually found this on the back of DaVinci Macaroni Pasta. I never know whether to trust those things but I tried it out and oooh is it DeliCious!

2 c. diced tomatoes
2 c. tomato paste
1 c. water
2 cloves finely chopped garlic
1/2 c. finely chopped onions
2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp sugar
1/4 c. chopped parsley
1/2 tsp pepper
1 lb of ground beef
1/2 lb pasta
4 ounces cream cheese
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
1 c. grated swiss cheese (or cheddar)

Combine tomatoes, tomatoe paste, water, garlic, onions, pepper, salt, sugar, parsley and oregano in a pot. simmer for 1 hour on medium heat. Saute ground beef until done. combing with tomatoe mixture and simmer on low heat for 15 to 20 mins. Use 9X13 pan. Layer pan with sauce. Add a layer of cooked pasta. add a tbsp of cream cheese in each corner. scatter grated parmesan cheese and swiss cheese over pan. repeat. Bake for 30 mins @ 350. Scatter any remaining cheese on top and cook for 5-10 mins.

My own way of doing this. I didn't have ground beef the times I made it so I just added more cheese and the cream cheese you can add as much or as little as you want it worked better for me to put little chunks all over. I'm sure it tastes wonderful with the beef and I even thought about when i make it next to add spinach to it. Yum.
