1 pound lean ground beef
1 medium onion chopped (or substitute 1/3 cup dehydrated chopped onion for convenience)

1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
5 cups hot cooked penne pasta
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese

In large skillet over medium-high heat, cook beef and onion until beef is browned. Stir to separate meat, pour off fat if necessary.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.
