My almost two year old loves to eat pretty much anything and everything! He does have his favorites though... and pasta tops that list! He always wants "Noooooodddds" as he calls them. So any chance I get to cook with pasta or noodles I try to take. This casserole tastes just like a cheeseburger (which is another one of his tops 5 favorite foods) and can be made in no time at all!
1 pound ground beef
8 oz. (1/2 a bag) of egg noodles
1 (28 oz.) can chopped tomatoes
2 cups grated cheese (I use the 3 Cheese Mexican Blend from Costco but you can use whatever you have on hand)
1 tablespoon worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon oregano
salt and pepper for seasoning
Preheat oven to 350°.
Brown ground beef and drain fat. Return to heat and add chopped tomatoes, worcestershire sauce, oregano and salt and pepper. Bring to a boil and then turn heat to low and let simmer for 15 minutes.
Cook egg noodles until Al dente (about 6 mintues after you bring water to a rolling boil).
Drain noodles and pour into large bowl. Combine noodles and meat mixture and pour into 9x13 casserole dish.
Top with cheese.
Bake for 15 minutes.
Served here with green beans... from the can. Super quick and easy dinner that everyone loved!
