“This is a family favorite and is great for family gatherings and pot-lucks. This dish can be prepared ahead of time and refrigerated 1 to 2 days before baking. It may not look too appetizing during the preparation stage, but the end result is scrumptious.”

Original recipe yields 8 servings



  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente.
  2. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook ground beef and onion until beef is no longer pink. Drain grease, and stir in the chili, cream of mushroom soup, evaporated milk, mushrooms and black olives. Mix in 3/4 of the Cheddar cheese and the cooked shell pasta. Transfer the mixture to a 9x13 inch baking dish, and sprinkle remaining cheese over the top.
  3. Bake for 1 hour in the preheated oven, or until the top is browned and bubbly.

This dish was okay, but nothing spectacular. It was easy to make, but a little bland. I used chili with tabasco sauce added, but it still needed a little bit of spice. I think an hour would have burned this dish in my oven. After about 35 minutes this dish was golden brown and bubbling. I'm going to try it again and add some cayenne pepper and garlic or something. Maybe some more vegetables to add a little crunch.



this is the best casserole you can make.My family wants it on a daily basis now, you have got to give it a try only once and you will be hooked on it yourself for the rest of your life!!!!



Would love to give it more stars. Very easy to prepare and the taste is great. I would add just a little pepper but that's about it. Really liked it. Served it with the mayonaise biscuits from this site for a fantastic meal. Thanks. Myrna
