My family goes crazy over pasta dishes. My kids asked for seconds of this and took it for lunch the next day. It feeds a crowd. It is comfort but also quick, easy to prep, affordable (you could probably shop your pantry), and delicious. This will be a meal you turn to time and time again.
You will need…
3 cups of cheddar cheese (I used sharp, but you can use whatever you have on hand). Reserve 1 cup of cheese for the top.
1 pound of ground beef
1 can cream of Mushroom Soup
2 cans of Tomato Soup
1 can whole kernel corn (drained)
1 cup of onion (I used 1/2 of this onion)
3 teaspoons of chili powder (It will not be spicy…if you would like a little heat add more)
12 oz dried macaroni (I took the standard 24 oz bag and eye-balled half the bag…saving the rest for another meal)
Begin by preheating your oven to 350 and boiling your pasta. Boil the macaroni for only 7 minutes (you want it al dente).
While pasta is boiling, brown hamburger and onion in a large pan. I love using my Dutch oven (I even meal plan around being able to use my Dutch oven…THANK YOU Connie!)
Once your hamburger is browned, add soups, 2 cups of cheese, chili powder and corn to the pan.
Mix everything together with the macaroni noodles.
Top with remaining cheese.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes, until the cheese on top is bubbling…not the best picture but this is seriously amazing!
If you are wanting to switch up your week night dinners, this will be an easy meal!
