Coming from a family with a love of fresh pastas and Italian food, there was definitely no shortage big meals at my house.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a 9×13-inch glass baking dish with nonstick spray.
In a large nonstick pan, brown beef and onion over medium-high for about 8-10 minutes, stirring frequently. Drain beef mixture of any grease, then return to the heat.
Stir in the tomato sauce, brown sugar, worcestershire, mustard, and salt, cooking 2-3 more minutes, stirring frequently until simmering.
Layer half the frozen tater tots in the bottom of the baking dish, in a single layer. Spoon the beef mixture on top, then top with 1 cup of cheese, remaining potatoes, then the rest of the cheese.
