“A delicious recipe my grandma gave me, this was my favorite dinner when I was a kid. It's still in my top ten! For the grown-ups, Grandma would make another casserole separately with a layer of sliced green olives.” - by DAWNARNOLD3
Original recipe yields 6 servings
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
- In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, saute the ground beef and the onion together for about 5 minutes, or until the meat is browned and crumbly. Stir in the tomato paste, stewed tomatoes with juice, salt and ground black pepper.
- Add the uncooked egg noodles to this mixture and pour in water to cover. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and let simmer until the noodles are slightly softened, about 5 minutes. Drain excess water, stir in the corn and transfer mixture to a 9x13-inch baking dish. Top with cheese.
- Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 30 minutes.

"This recipe is so versatile. Not fancy but very tasty! I've also made it with ground sausage (breakfast, and sweet italian). I like to add a bit (1 tsp?) chili powder, and fresh 2 cloves garlic when c..." See moreooking the meat. I cook the noodles almost as directed but I generally don't add much water, actually usually use beef or veggie broth. Use enough liquid to barely cover and with a little creative poking you can get all the noodles in the liquid. I then cover with foil (or lid) and bake about 30-40 minutes. I also mix half the cheese in the mixture and sprinkle the remaining on top toward the end. My children HATE orange cheese so I general end up using mozzerella unless I luck out and find white cheddar. I use whole wheat elbow noodles and low fat cheese to make this a nice healthy meal."
"My husband and I really liked this, although my picky three-year-old did not. I added a little garlic powder and some italian seasoning for extra flavor. Next time, I think I'll use a little more be..." See moreef, a little more corn, and a little less noodles. I'm also going to try cooking the noodles separately, then adding them to the mix when it's time to transfer it to the baking dish; it seems you throw out a lot of flavoring with the excess water you have to drain after cooking the noodles as described in the recipe. I wonder how this would be using Mexican stewed tomatoes and adding a little taco seasoning to the beef. It seems there are endless ways to "tweak" this to suit your family's tastes. Thanks a bunch, Dawn and Dawn's grandma!"
"I loved this and I was actually how great it was! It seems too simple! I did some small variations so I could use up some ingredients I already had on hand. Here's what I did...used ground turkey inst..."
