Beef & Elbow Macaroni Casserole With Sour Cream

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Heather N.

Affectionately coined "Debbie's Casserole" in our household. Named after a family friend from church named Debbie N. This was a staple in our house and didn't last very long. My father in particular loved this recipe.

I made this for supper tonight and it was a hit! I did substitute Rotel for the tomato sauce per the suggestion of another reviewer. I put the Rotel in the food processor so it would be smooth instead of chunky. Will definitely make this again!
