PostHeaderIcon Methodist Women Bearing Casseroles: Recipe Friday

This Week: Cheeseburger Macaroni Bake

1 pound lean ground beef
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup uncooked elbow macaroni or rotini pasta
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 (8-ounce) can tomato sauce
1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1 - 1 1/2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese

Preheat oven to 350 degrees (F).
Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan; set aside.
Brown ground beef and onion in large skillet. Drain.
Cook macaroni or pasta according to package directions (boil until tender). Drain well.
Spoon macaroni into prepared pan. Top with beef, onions and chopped tomato. Pour tomato sauce evenly, then season with salt and pepper.
Sprinkle with cheese and cover pan loosely with foil.

Bake @ 350 for 35 minutes or until cheese is completely melted and edges of casserole are bubbling.

Note: Prep and cook time (including making a salad for "balance") is only about an hour, all told. For a flavorful change of pace, instead of chopped tomato use a can of Rotel tomatos and chiles -- or if you want more of an Italian flair, substitute spaghetti sauce for regular tomato sauce.
