Alison's Eezee Peezee Baked Zeetee
This was a quick fix meal for mom and dad as a thank you for this weekend. It's a family favorite. Lindsey, this one's for you, sista!

extra virgin olive oil
1 lb. ground beef
2-3 links of Johnsonville Hot Italian Sausage
1 large sweet onion
1 small can of sliced mushrooms (or small pkg. of fresh is better)
Jane's Crazy Mixed Up Salt
1 jar of Paul Newman's Sockarooni (my favorite jar sauce)
1 c. sharp white cheddar cheese, shredded
2 c. mozzarella cheese
1/4 c. Parmesan cheese
3 c. dry penne pasta
In large pot, saute chopped onions in a little olive oil. As the onions begin to turn golden, add sliced mushrooms and continue cooking until they become tender. Sprinkle onions and mushrooms with Jane's Crazy Salt and pepper to taste. Then add your ground beef and Italian sausage to the pot and cook on medium high until all the pink disappears. Spoon off the grease and check meat for seasoning. If needed, add more Crazy Salt and pepper. Add jar of Sockarooni and stir.
In the meantime, boil your 3 cups of penne pasta according to package directions. Drain, and combine with meat mixture and 1 cup of sharp white cheddar cheese.
Grease a 9x13 dish and pour in the deliciousness. Top with mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses. Drizzle with olive oil and pop into a preheated 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
