Cheeseburger Casserole

So I am going to post the recipe first, and then I will tell you what I did different and what I PLAN on doing different next time…

Ingredients:

1 lb ground beef ( I use turkey because its cheaper and better for you)

2 peppers any color chopped

1/2 cup onion

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

2 cups elbow macaroni noodles

mushroom if desired

Preparation:

Cook and season beef until browned. Add onions and pepper and cook until crispy. Bring noodles to boil and then drain. Mix all ingredients together and spread in a 8×12 baking dish. Sprinkle top with cheese and bake at 350 for 30 min.

Now what I did was add sliced tomato on the top of the meat and pasta mixture and then sprinkled the cheese on top of the tomato. I used both cheddar and mozzarella cheese and it was delicious. I also put it into a 9×13 pan. NEXT time I make the recipe I will be adding a can of tomato sauce to the meat, onions, and peppers because it was a bit dry. Since it is supposed to represent a cheeseburger I figure the tomato sauce and tomato slices would be delicious!!!

Enjoy and here is a picture of the finished project!
