Easy Beef Noodle Bake

This dish reminded me of the casseroles my mom use to make for dinner. It was even better warmed up the next day for lunch.

1 lb. ground beef
1 small onion
1 can diced tomatoes with green chili's
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 small package of your favorite pasta (cooked according to package directions)
Cheddar Cheese

Brown ground beef with onion in a skillet. Salt and pepper to taste. Drain grease. Add tomatoes and mushroom soup, stir well. Stir in cooked pasta. Pour into casserole dish and top with cheddar cheese. Bake at 350 for about 20-30 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

*GREAT IDEA: While you're at it, double the ground beef, onion and tomatoes. Use half the mixture to make the casserole that night. Put the rest in a ziplock freezer bag and save for another night. All you would need to do is cook the pasta and then add the mushroom soup to the meat mixture, stir it, top with cheese and bake. Easy!
