Recipe Fridays: Jackpot Noodle Casserole

One dish meals are always good, and this casserole was my favorite growing up. It's cheap and cravable - the perfect growing teenager food. Here's what you need:

1 lb ground beef or turkey
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 can tomato soup
1 1/2 cups water
1 cup grated cheddar or American cheese
4 oz noodles (elbows are the best for this, but any will work)
1 can creamed corn
salt and pepper
optional: 1/4 cup chopped olives (I never add this, as I detest all brined foods)

  1. In a dutch oven, brown meat and spoon off as much grease as possible.
  2. Add onion, soup, water and noodles. Cook until noodles are tender. Season to taste.
  3. Add corn, olives, and 1/4 cup of the cheese. Sprinkle the rest of the cheese on top. (I always add extra cheese).
  4. Bake (uncovered) at 350 for 45 minutes.
This recipe can easily be doubled, and there is considerable margin of error - you can't miss!
