Beefy Mac Bake

This is a new one I decided to give a whirl. It was ok definitely not a 10 but it will do for a quick fix.

1 lb ground beef
2 C shredded cheese
1 container ricotta cheese
1 jar spaghetti sauce
2 carrots chopped
1 small onion chopped
half package of elbow macaroni

Start water for noodles. Saute carrots and onions til soft. Add ground beef and brown with veggies. Add sauce and let simmer for 10 minutes. When noodles are done put half in a small baking dish and layer the beef mixture on top. Then spread a little ricotta then cheese then repeat layers ending with cheese. Bake at 350 for 25 minutes.

*The recipe called for using sour cream instead of ricotta. Try that for a nice change. Maybe if I had done that I would have liked it a little more.
