  • Here's one that's quick and easy, or what about breakfast for dinner, or a big dinner salad with cold cuts on top. Or canned soup and sandwiches.
    Skillet Beef & Noodles

    1 lb. lean ground beef
    2 Tablespoons oil
    2 garlic cloves, minced or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 medium onion, chopped
    1/2 green pepper, chopped
    1 Tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
    1 (8 oz) can tomato sauce
    1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, cut in cubes
    1 1/2 cups noodles, cooked
    Cook noodles as package directs. Brown hamburger, garlic, onion & green pepper. Add Worcestershire sauce and cook 5-10 minutes. Add tomato sauce. Cook 10 minutes. Turn down heat. Add cream cheese and cooked, drained noodles. Stir until cheese is well blended.

  • I make this thing called Taco Casserole, that I found in a magazine, it sounds odd, but it is a favorite everywhere I take it.

    what you need is:

    ~1lb ground burger
    ~2 cups bow tie pasta
    ~2 cups shredded cheese
    ~1 jar salsa
    ~taco seasoning
    ~black beans(optional)

    Cook and drain noodles, brown the meat and mix the taco seasoning as it says to do on the taco seasoning packet, then mix all ingredients together expect the Doritos. Put in a casserole dish, and top with crushed Doritos, back in the oven at about 350-375 for about 5-10 min.
