Beef 'n Noodle Casserole

Total Time
Prep 15 mins
Cook 30 mins

This is a great "do ahead" casserole. Make it the day before or in the morning and just pop it in the oven for 1/2 hour before dinner. Not only that it tastes good.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the noodles until just tender, drain, rinse with cold water, drain well and set aside.
  2. In a large skillet melt the butter.
  3. Add beef and fry until well cooked and crumbly.
  4. Stir in salt pepper, basil and tomato sauce.

  6. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  7. Butter a casserole dish (8-inch square).
  8. Put in half on the noodle mixture.
  9. Top with half of the beef.
  10. Add last half of noodles and top with the remaining beef.
  11. Sprinkle with the cheddar cheese.
  12. Bake uncovered, 30 minutes or until bubbly and the cheese has melted.

Nice flavor and very easy. I used mild cheddar cheese as my kids aren't sharp cheese fans. Next time I would skip the butter, saute ground beef in a non-stick skillet and drain fat. You only need to cook the noodles a couple of minutes to soften before you add as they cook more in the oven.

This was very good. I guess you could say it is a "different" type of Lasagne or maybe "Lasagne" with a "Twist". Very good. (fairly quick and easy too)

We loved this dish, I used thin egg noodles..a can of tomato soup (instead of the tomato sauce)with some dried Italian herbs thrown in for measure. Delicious, thanks Bergy. =)
