Last Night's Fiasco We Called Dinner

Last night's dinner was a bit of fiasco... let's just say, my meat was still frozen, I was out of ingredients, I ended up with tomato sauce covering my kitchen and myself. No joke. It was in my hair, on my face, and all over my shirt. Ugh! Oh, and I forgot to turn on the oven... and realized it after the casserole "baked" for 30 minutes. Not good when you have a VERY hungry toddler!

The casserole did turn out good so I thought I'd share the recipe. These are estimates because I tend to not measure things out!

My Italian Pizza Casserole

2 1/2 cups egg noodles
1 lb ground beef
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 small bell pepper, chopped
onion, diced
3 8 oz cans tomato sauce
3 T Italian seasoning
1 t oregano
1 t rosemary
1 t thyme
Mozzarella Cheese - grated

Cook noodles according to package and drain. While noodles are cooking, cook garlic, bell pepper, and onion in a bit of oil on medium heat for 3 minutes or so. Add hamburger meat and brown. Salt & pepper. Drain off any fat.

Mix noodles, hamburger meat, tomato sauce, seasonings, and 1/3 cup cheese. Spread in 9x13 casserole dish. Sprinkle with cheese and pepperonis. Bake for 30 minutes at 350.

I made two 9" square dishes and froze one for later.

  1. They say the third time is the charm, so let me try, for the third time, to comment here without interruption. :) Haha, if I wrote about all my fiasco dinners I don't think anyone would ever want to eat at my house again! :) Let's just say my experimental cooking...should not be legal. I am okay as long as I follow a recipe, and yours look delicious! I am especially interested to try the chocolate peanut butter muffins; my sweet Hubby has a sweet tooth and a love of all things chocolate and peanut butter.
    Thank you for stopping by yesterday and for your kind words. I hope you will have a wonderful day!


I love hearing from you beautiful readers! Leave some love!
