Ground Beef, Noodle, Cream of Chicken Soup Casserole

This is comfort food. When my husband's grandmother passed away 25 years ago a neighbor sent this over to my mother-in-laws house, it was very well received as all the other neighbors were sending over cakes, pies and jello salads. We have been making this ever since. Hint: Put this together the night before and finish it off when you get home from work.

This was a big hit with my boys. They wanted me to make it again the next night! I did as one reader suggested and used cream of chicken as well as cream of mushroom soups. I also added the onion soup mix. I put corn , mushrooms and garlic powder in it along with a little chili powder for an added zing. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting!

This was very easy to make but I don't think I'll make it again. It was OK but nothing special. A bit bland but maybe would be better with the onion soup mix like some suggested. I did the crescent rolls over the top rather than the bread-maybe that made a difference too. It was worth a try though. Thanks!

Once I got started on this, I went a little crazy with it. I used 96% fat free ground beef. I added a can of cream of mushroom in with it as well as the cream of chicken (both the 98% fat free) and did as new chef mentioned and added the onion soup mix. I also added crescent rolls to the top instead of bread because I didn't have bread. And, I had some corn, peas, and carrots I needed to use, so I tossed them in too. My family said they'd like to have this on the table once a week! YAY!!! Definitely comfort food even with the low fat items. Thanks for the great idea!
