Cook pasta according to package directions; rinse and drain. Meanwhile, brown beef with onion, garlic and oregano in large skillet over medium-high heat; drain. Season with salt and pepper, if desired. Add spaghetti sauce and zucchini. Cook 15 minutes or until thickened, stirring occasionally. In oiled 2-quart microwavable dish, arrange half of pasta; top with half each of sauce and cheese. Repeat layers ending with cheese; cover. Microwave on high 8 to 10 minutes or until heated through, rotating dish halfway through cooking time. Makes 4 servings. Helpful Hint: For convenience, double recipe and freeze one for later use. The recipe can also be made ahead, refrigerated and heated just before serving (allow extra time in microwave if dish is chilled). Formatted by Lynn Thomas firstname.lastname@example.org. Source: Easy Home Cooking Casseroles and Country Favorites. Lynns notes: Made this 2-24-98; doubled the amount of tortellini, beef and onion; used 1-1/2 jars Ragu hearty garlic and onion sauce, mixed together the beef mixture, tortellini and added 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella and dumped it all into a sprayed 9x13" pan, topped with parmesan cheese. Did that early in the day and heated in the microwave on high for 15 minutes at dinnertime. This was a terrific dish and easy to make.
