Guys! I found a recipe that is perfect for this time of year! Around here, we are all getting ready for school to start, so it is that time when I start looking for recipes that are quick to make, take just a few ingredients and are easy to double the recipe so that I can freeze half for another time.
The flavor is unreal, it is a comfort food by all standards and it is so easy to make. This Amish Country Casserole is so tasty and filling, I can’t believe that it is not more popular than it is.
YIELD: 8-10 SERVINGS
Casserole is made with ground beef, noodles, an easy homemade sauce (without cream of mushroom soup) and topped off with Parmesan cheese.
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: 25 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 35 minutes
12 ounces egg noodles or rotini pasta
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
2 Tablespoons all purpose flour
1 (14.5 ounce) can beef broth
1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
1 cup milk (or 1/2 & 1/2)
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley
1 cup Parmesan
Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package. Drain and set aside.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet, brown together the ground beef and onion. Do not drain the grease.
Add the paprika, garlic salt, pepper, and flour to the ground beef. Cook and stir until all the seasonings have been incorporated.
Over medium-high heat, add the broth, tomato soup, and milk. Cook and stir until the mixture comes to a simmer and thickens up.
Add the cooked noodles to the sauce and heat through.
Sprinkle the parsley and Parmesan over the top and serve.
Freezer instructions: Prepare as directed and then tightly cover in a freezer safe pan. To reheat the casserole, let the casserole thaw in the fridge for 24 hours. Then bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
