Skinnytaste's Cheeseburger Casserole

I have been a little crazy at work so not a lot of time to post so a quick post of dinner last week! I've been working out at the gym and trying hard to pre-make dinner and have it in the oven on delay start!  I have been trying to do healthier meals that fill us but still not filled with calories and fat. I love Skinnytaste's website, she is in my top 3 that I go to for meal planning. This Cheeseburger Casserole needed a little extra flavoring for my boys taste but it was an easy and filling dinner.

 
Ingredients:
 
2 cups (6 oz) uncooked rotini pasta
2 tsp olive oil 
1 1/2 cups onions, finely chopped 
1 garlic clove, finely chopped 
1 lb lean ground beef (95% lean) 
3/4 tsp salt 
1/2 tsp black pepper 
2 tbsp tomato paste 
28 oz diced tomatoes 
2 tbsp Dijon Mustard 
2 cups reduced-fat grated cheddar cheese 
1/4 cup chopped dill pickles 
 
Directions
 
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking dish with cooking spray. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta according to the package directions for al dente and drain well. In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-low heat. Add the onions and cook until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic and cook for 30 seconds. Stir in the beef and cook until browned; season with salt and pepper. Stir in the tomato paste, then add the tomatoes and mustard. Let the mixture bubble gently until it is slightly thickened, about 2 minutes. Toss the meat mixture with the pasta and spread it into the prepared dish. Top with the cheddar and bake until the cheese is melted, about 15 minutes. Sprinkle the chopped pickles over the top and serve. Makes about 9 cups.
