Beefy-Noodle Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 45mins
Recipe by shugMN

This is a easy recipe that I found in a church cookbook that I have changed around a bit for my taste. It's a good throw together that can be left in the oven and forgotten about until chow time is near.

I thought that this was missing a bit as written. Bec mentioned that it was bland; since we hate bland food, I attempted to correct that beforehand. I added salt, pepper, and Recipe #16261 to the meat and vegetables while browning. I also used Campbell's Cream of Mushroom Soup with Roasted Garlic and substituted beef broth for the water. The cooking time, although unusually long, was correct. I uncovered the dish for the last 15 minutes of the 1.5 hours. The recipe doesn't say what size casserole to use. I used a 9 X13 pan, but it was actually too big, and would definitely go for 11 X 7 (possibly even smaller). After all the tweaks, it was still a bit bland. I guess this just isn't for us.
