I like this recipe because it is fast and has the main food groups all in one dish. This is a brain storm of mine that I struck upon while trying to find something my son would eat that was healthy and fast. This meal was dubbed "delicious" by my son.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups pasta (bow-tie,shells, I used Campanelle and cut it in half for my son)
  • 1 lb ground beef
  • 1 (14 ounce) can stewed tomatoes (pair with oregano and basil)
  • 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can green beans
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup, with roasted garlic soup
  • 12 cup milk (You can add cheese and so on too if you like to make a casserole, or want to add a bit of contrast t)

Directions

  1. If preparing as a casserole, please preheat your oven to 350 degrees (enough to melt cheese as other ingredients should be hot.) Please prepare your choice of pasta as directed on package.
  2. Meanwhile brown you hamburger; (I added dried onion, salt, pepper, red wine vinegar, and garlic salt to mine. Feel free to experiment, I do) When pasta is finished, add cream of mushroom and roasted garlic soup, milk, green beans, and stewed tomatoes then mix til ingredients are coated well with soup mix.
  3. (This may get bigger than your pot, so I dumped it all and"tossed" it together in a 9. 5 X 13. 5 X 2in. 3 quart casserole dish).
  4. When hamberger is done, drain, and stir into the"mix" of other ingredients.
  5. Top with cheese if you wish.
  6. At this stage you can either make a casserole, or keep it in the dish and have the toss-up version as I did- in which case you can serve, and enjoy!
  7. However-- If making a casserole, your oven should be preheated, but as there are different ovens-- it may not be.
  8. When it is preheated, slid casserole dish with all ingredients into oven.
  9. After five to ten minutes, depending on your oven, remove and let cool a few minutes.
  10. Then, serve, and enjoy!
