"Grandma Casserole" From Head baker Meredith

Grandma Casserole1
  • 1.5 pounds ground beef
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 pound box of elbow pasta, cooked al dente
  • 12 oz cheese ( I usually use extra sharp white cheddar, but for the demo I used 8 oz Europa and 4 oz Mt Tom)
  • 1 cans tomato soup
  • 1.5 soup cans milk (use one of the tomato soup cans after the soup is out!) 
  • salt and pepper to taste

Brown up the ground beef, and add the onions to the pan to saute just before the beef is cooked through. Garlic can go in with the onions. In a large bowl combine the cooked pasta, tomato soup, and milk. Stir to combine. Add in your cheese and beef and stir to combine. Pour into a 9x13 casserole dish and bake covered with foil at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Remove the foil and stir. Bake an additional 30 minutes at 350 degrees and voila! Its done!

I serve with crusty bread and butter, and a salad! Enjoy!
