foil dinner recipe

So I forgot to actually give you the recipe; here it is:

Pasta foil dinner (for 4 foil dinners but will probably feed 4 boys but 5-6 women.)

1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes; put in 4 cup container and fill with water to 4 cup mark I would use my immersible blender and cut up the tomatoes a bit
1 (8 oz) tomato sauce
1 onion diced
garlic (we smooshed it but forgot to put it in)
1 lb. hamburger meat
8 oz. noodles divided into 2 oz @
1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
4 tablespoon ricotta cheese
Parmesan cheese

Each child spiced his meat the way he liked it with Tony's Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper and garlic. I took a large piece of foil and formed it in a small bowl where the 1/4+ cup of onion was put, then the meat was formed on top of it and tapped down (in an effort to keep the wet ingredient above the meat), then 2 oz. pasta, 1 cup of the diced tomatoes, 2 Tablespoons of tomato sauce and 1/4 teaspoon of Italian seasoning. Fold the foil over and put on coals for 30 minutes.
I used a small flat noodle but I think a think a noodle like macaroni would have worked also.

Open put a tablespoon of ricotta cheese on top
sprinkle with Parmesan
close and wait a few minutes to heat up the cheese
