Beefy-Noodle Casserole

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.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 lb hamburger
  • 12 cup uncooked white rice
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can chicken noodle soup
  • 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup (or any cream soup you prefer)
  • 10 12 ounces water
  • 1 small onion, chopped (dehydrated onions work great)
  • 1 small green pepper, chopped (dehydrated peppers work great)


  1. Brown beef with onion and green pepper.
  2. Add soups, water, and rice.
  3. Place in casserole dish.
  4. Bake covered at 325 degrees for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

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.

This was very good! I printed this out right when it was posted in February, but I was at college so I couldn't make it until summer came along! I used 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup (that and the chicken noodle soup were 10.75 ounce cans) and fresh onion and green pepper. I baked it for an hour and 40 minutes or so, and it was perfect. The only thing keeping me from giving this a 5 was that we all needed to add salt and pepper at the dinner table; otherwise, it lacked some needed flavor. It served 4 like you said (no leftovers!) Thanks for sharing!

This was a very tasty dish. I didn't have the chicken noodle soup on hand, so I substituted with a can of chicken broth and increased the rice to 1 cup.
