A casserole for now or later
This is a casserole that you can make the filling ahead and freeze. I make a double or triple batch and freeze it in my vacume sealer for later on. I don't freeze it after it is all together.
1 pound ground beef
1/2 cup diced onions
1/4 cup diced green pepper
2 cups cooked tomatoes
1 cup water
1 T. garlic powder
1 T. oregano
2 cans mushrooms (optional)
about 2 ounces of UNCOOKED spaghetti
Shredded Cheddar cheese
Brown beef, onions & green peppers until cooked done. Drain grease off
and add the remaining ingredients EXCEPT spaghetti. Simmer 20 minutes.
Spoon enough meat mixture into a 2 quart casserole dish to cover the bottom,
break spaghetti into 3 or four pieces and spread over meat in dish, top
with remaining meat mixture. Sprinkle cheese evenly over the top, cover
and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes.
Very good served with Texas toast and a salad.
