I have to credit my mom on this one, as it's a spin on a recipe she used to make for us growing up <3
In a frying pan I cooked:
- onions (from the bucket)
- chopped chard (from the bucket)
- 1 pound of grass-fed ground beef
In a separate pot I boiled a bag of whole wheat gobetti noodles, but, of course any shape would work fine.
While those things were cooking, in the casserole dish I added:
- 2 (regular sized) cans of diced tomatoes
- one can of corn
- 3/4 of a bag of shredded cheddar
I baked it, covered, at 350 degrees for about an hour. 10 minutes before it was ready, I uncovered the casserole and topped it with the rest of the shredded cheddar and crushed tortilla chips.
Simple, very tasty, and the best part- it can be made ahead of time (ahem, nap time) and then tossed in the oven an hour before dinner!
