Classic comfort food that I have been making for years but can't remember where the recipe originally came from. Wanted to post it so I wouldn't lose it!

Directions

  1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook and stir beef, salt, and black pepper in the hot skillet until browned and crumbly, 5 to 7 minutes; drain and discard grease. Add onion, green bell pepper, carrot, and garlic to ground beef; cook and stir until onion is lightly browned, about 15 minutes.
  2. Mix tomatoes, tomato sauce, mushrooms, brown sugar, and Worcestershire sauce into ground beef-vegetable mixture; season with salt and black pepper. Cook on low until liquid is reduced and flavors have blended, about 45 minutes.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  4. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook the bow-tie pasta at a boil, stirring occasionally, until cooked through yet firm to the bite, about 12 minutes; drain and transfer pasta to a 9x13-inch casserole dish.
  5. Spoon cream of mushroom soup over bow-tie pasta; top with ground beef-tomato mixture. Sprinkle Cheddar cheese on top.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until casserole is bubbling and Cheddar cheese is melted, about 45 minutes.

i made this for dinner it was very tasty, i made a few modifications, no sliced mushrooms or carrots ( didn't have any one hand) I also added a can of dark red kidney beans, also i did NOT add the sugar, i don't do added sugar, but since I'm into spicy food i added crushed red pepper flakes, cayenne, paprika, and chili powder.... some of the reviews said it was bland (i fixed that issue :) My super picky 2 year old finished his plate and was on my lap eating mine :)

I was pleasantly surprised on how good this casserole was! It had great flavors. I added half of the shredded cheese on top of the mushroom soup. I also baked half the time then added the other cheese on top.I will defiantly make this again!

Delicious. A good sized casserole with a lot of flavor. I only cooked the beef mixture about 20 minutes(instead of 45)and baked the entire dish for 30 min. I used whole wheat pasta, added a little liquid to the soup, used fresh mushrooms and was generous with the cheese on top. This recipe is a keeper.
