I made this for the same family reunion where I took the Snickers Pie. Since I also happened to be preparing for a wedding cake (more on that later), that was all I took. If you're looking for a side, go for a salad or maybe some green vegetable.
For people with busy schedules, this dish is good because it comes
together rather quickly and involves few ingredients. The results are, to me, so good! I truly love this dish. Part of my attachment may be sentimental, but it has a lot of flavors that work well together. Think of it as a cheeseburger in casserole form, and you sort of get the idea.
Ground Beef Casserole
from my mom's recipe collection
1 lb. ground beef
1- 10 oz can cream of mushroom soup
1 medium onion, chopped
1-14 oz can diced tomatoes
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup (4 oz) cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 to 1 large bell pepper, cut into strips
4 oz egg noodles
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Brown beef and onion in a skillet and drain any fat. Add tomatoes, salt, soup, and pepper. Let simmer while you cook the egg noodles according to package directions. Drain the noodles and add to the beef mixture. Add 1/2 c. cheese. Pour into a casserole dish or 9x13 pan and sprinkle remaining cheese on top. Bake for 15 minutes.
So, if you try it let me know what you think by posting in the comments section. Have a great day!
