Crunchy Beef Bake Recipe

I always use corkscrew noodles when preparing this, because the sauce seems to cling to them better than it does to flat noodles—ensuring plenty of good taste in every bite!—Janie Moore, Marion, Ohio
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:4-6 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cups uncooked spiral pasta
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3/4 cup chopped green pepper

  • 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 3/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 can (2.8 ounces) french-fried onions

Directions

  • 1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Meanwhile, in a Dutch oven, cook the beef, green pepper and garlic over medium heat until meat is no longer pink and green pepper is tender; drain.
  • 2. Drain pasta; add to the beef mixture with the tomatoes, soup, cheese and salt.
  • 3. Transfer to a greased 2-qt. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes. Uncover; sprinkle with onions and bake 5 minutes longer. Yield: 4-6 servings.

"We have renamed this our family goulash. My son asks for it every time he returns home. I have made a double batch and frozen one for a later date and it works really well."

"This was very good. I used 2 fresh plum tomatoes instead of can. I cut the french-fried onions to half a can. Everyone in the family liked it."
