Hamburger Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 10mins
Recipe by Bean5286

I received this recipe from my dentist when I was just leaving for College. He claimed that he made it up one day in his kitchen! (He's an excellent cook and makes his own bbq sauces all the time!) It's the best one dish meal I've ever made. I've adapted it several times over the past 12 years (including using turkey burger!) I now serve it to my family and it is constantly requested!

We liked this dish a lot. It was easy to put together, and the flavors all complimented each other. I did not use the Tabasco because I used 1 Tbsp. of New Mexico chile powder, and it is much hotter than supermarket brands. It worked out perfectly. When I started putting the ingredients together, I only had 8oz. of tomato sauce, so I added 1 can crushed tomatoes, and 1/4 cup tomato juice as substitue for another 8oz. of tomato sauce. It came out moist and the noodles were cooked crunch to them. I will make this one again, and hopefully I will have 2 cans of the tomato sauce. Thanks for posting this great casserole recipe.
