I love to make this simple Greek Style Ground Beef & Lamb Pasta Bake. It is full of delicious Greek flavors like oregano, lemon, and feta cheese. When I eat this, if I close my eyes, I can almost imagine that I’m back on one of Greece’s beautiful islands.

To make this delicious bake, start by cooking beef and lamb. Add onion, garlic, oregano, basil, salt, pepper, and thyme, along with tomato sauce, tomatoes, and lemon juice. As the sauce simmers, cook the pasta according to package directions and drain. Mix with the sauce and transfer to a baking dish. Sprinkle with feta cheese and bake until cooked. Delicious!
