"This is a very flexible dish, and you can adjust it to your own taste! If you like kidney beans, add another can. If you don't like kidney beans, substitute one small can sliced black olives and a (4 ounce) can sliced mushrooms for the beans." — MARBALET

lean ground beef
chopped green bell pepper
1 (28 ounce) can
stewed tomatoes, with liquid
1 (15 ounce) can
1 (16 ounce) package
grated Parmesan cheese
Would rate this a 10 if I could. Browned breakfast sausage (from this site) with 1 lb hamburger. Added onion, celery and red pepper. Mixed in undrained can tomatoes and green chilies and drained and rinsed can red kidney beans. Mixed cooked noodles with the meat mixture. Poured into greased baking dish. Topped with shredded provel cheese and sharp cheddar. Baked for 15 minutes. Very versatile recipe. Next time will melt Velveeta cheese on top.
I changed this recipe a little. I omitted the stewed tomatoes and added jar prego sauce. I also left out the kidney beans. I also added provolone and mild cheddar cheeses.
This casserole is EXCELLENT. I like to add extra cheddar cheese, mushrooms and chilies to give it some extra kick... my friends love it. Thanks from a (formerly) hungry college student.
I omitted the green pepper and pork and doubled the tomatoes to up the veggie quotient. Very tasty!
I divided the recipe in two. Substitutions: no ground pork, no beans, used a large jar of of chunky spaghetti sauce, sprinkled shredded Italian cheese mix and baked for only 20 minutes. The family absolutely loved it and asked for it to be on the regular rotation! Good base recipe.
delicious, made for wifes work, they loved it, and wanted more
It just seemed that it was going to be too dry for my likings so I added a little flour to my meat/veggie mixture (to thicken) and then added a can of beef broth, making a gravy/sauce before adding the tomatoes, beans and a can of mushrooms. Also added some mozzarella to the sauce and then seasoned to taste w/salt & pepper. I did top w/parmesan & baked as directed. :) Sorry. Not really a review of the original recipe but thanks for the idea for a quick after work meal for my family.
