Threw this together after work. On the table in about 1 hour. Had a side salad. Honey Crisp Apples for dessert.

6 oz. (1/2 package) no yolk broad egg noodles
1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
1 large carrot, thinly sliced
1 banana pepper, diced
1/2 small red bell pepper, diced
1, 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes
1, 6 oz. can tomato paste
1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash (registered trademark) table blend
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 oz. shredded white cheddar cheese.

Boil noodles according to package directions until tender, drain and keep warm. Meanwhile, brown ground beef in deep skillet. Drain. Add onion, celery, carrot, peppers, diced tomatoes, tomato paste and Mrs. Dash to skillet. Bring to boil. Cover and reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Stir in noodles and Parmesan. Pour into greased 3 quart casserole dish. Bake in 350 F oven for 30 minutes. Top with cheddar cheese to serve. Serves 8.

We cook low sodium so we salted this at the table. You could season it with 1 teaspoon salt OR 1 tablespoon Worchestershire sauce OR 1 tablespoon soy sauce.

That sounds very tasty! I love meals you can just throw together with what you have on hand.

My favorite kind of dinners, using leftovers! I am getting that new fridge tomorrow and the freezer is almost cleaned out. I just cleared out the old stuff in the pantry too. Nice blog, thanks CJ:)

I LIKE HOW THE NOODLES DO NOT DOMINATE THE CASSEROLE! Lots of protein and goodies. You put my fave ingredients for a comfort casserole!

About Me
I love to develop new recipes. I have had 15 recipes published by Reiman publications, publishers of TASTE OF HOME magazine. I like to try at least one new recipe a week. My other interests that aren't listed above are running and horse racing. By profession I am a registered medical technologist currently working in microbiology at a local medical center.
My favorite things to cook
Soups. Main dishes for interesting evening meals. Simple baking like cookie jar cookies and quick breads.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I basically make Thanksgiving dinner like my mom did.
My cooking triumphs
Winning a runner up prize for my lasagne recipe when I worked for the Nestle corporation. (I was a part time R&D assistant for the Willy Wonka Candy Factory)
My cooking tragedies
Trying to make sweet and sour shrimp with deep fried shrimp. Coating came off the shrimp when I put the sauce on. My familiy refused to eat it. We were short of money then and it hurt to waste the food and then go get MacDonald's for dinner.
