Ground Beef Noodle Casserole Recipe

My mother shared this recipe with me soon after I was married. Most everything I know about cooking, I learned from her. This recipe has always been a family favorite, and it's a time-saver as well because it uses spaghetti sauce and gravy mix.—Christina Takacs, West Springfield, Massachusetts
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 30 min. YIELD:6 servings


  • 1 envelope brown gravy mix
  • 1 cup cold water
  • 1 pound ground beef

  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 ounces wide egg noodles, cooked and drained
  • 2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided

"Good flavor, but does not hold well. Eat right away! My family was late to dinner and the noodles became a mushy mess."

"I used organic heavy whipping cream, Brown rice Fusilli and both Parmesan and Mozzarella cheese. Also added some fresh organic baby spinach to it. Very good!"

"My ten-year-old niece really loved this dish. We agree that it tastes like lasagna, but so much easier to prepare. I didn't have cream, so I used regular milk and I didn't have parmesan, so I used mozzarella instead. It was very good, even so. I will definitely be making this again."
