Kids love this! I came up with this when company dropped in and my planned Sloppy Joes needed to be stretched. If you have a favorite Joe recipe, feel free to substitute or improvise. That's half the fun of cooking!
- 1 lb lean ground beef
- 1⁄2 cup chopped onion
- 3 quarts boiling water
- 1 (10 ounce) package bow tie pasta
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can tomato soup
- 1 cup water
- 1 teaspoon chili powder
- 1 tablespoon brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon dry mustard
- 1 tablespoon vinegar
- 8 ounces shredded cheese
- Brown beef and onions in hot skillet; drain grease.
- Cook noodles in boiling water for 10 minutes; drain and set aside.
- Combine soup, water, chili powder, brown sugar, dry mustard, and vinegar. Stir into cooked meat.
- Add drained noodles to meat mixture, stirring gently to avoid tearing noodles.
- Spoon beef-noodle mixture into a 9 X 13" baking pan. Sprinkle cheese over top.
- Bake, uncovered, at 300° for about 30 minutes.
This was so easy to make and both my kids ate it up so a big bonus! I made as is rather than using my regular sloppy joe sauce and this one was good too. I did add an extra 2 tsp of brown sugar but otherwise made as is. Made for Football Pool Week 16 win.
I like that this was easy to do. My son liked it. But for us we thought it needed more flavor. I used one large onion. I used another shape of pasta. Thanks ElaineAnn :) Made for I Recommend tag game
Made for your Football Pool win mainly because I esp favor versatile recipes & this invited further expansion for us. I added chopped mushrooms & olives GARLIC (a must for us). I wonder if a choice of veggie could be added as well? Maybe corn? This would be good made in lrg qty & frozen in portions ideal for 2 when served w/a salad on nites you need a quick-fix meal. Congrats on your Football Pool win & thx for sharing this recipe w/us.
