wipped clean. I'm potluck burned out. Made the Taco casserole twice (everyone loved it) There's a lot of side dishes and baked goods donated but not enough meat dishes. Another dinner coming up in two weeks. Any ideas out there? TIA


cup onions, finely chopped or 4 tablespoons dried onion flakes
2 pounds lean ground beef
2 large cans tomatoes, whole or diced
1 teaspoon salt
teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons chili powder
2 bay leaves
4 tablespoons cornstarch
4 cups medium shell noodles (cooked)
2 cups grated cheddar cheese

Brown meat, pour off fat. Save cup juice from tomatoes and coarsely chop the rest with a fork or motor blender. Add to meat mixture, tomatoes, salt, pepper, chili, bay leaves. Bring to boil, cover, simmer 15 minutes.

Blend corn starch with cup tomatoes juice; stir into meat mixture. Cook to thicken.

Mix noodles and meat mixture together in a large casserole. Stir in grated cheese (leave a little to sprinkle on top.

Bake in 350 degree oven for 30 minutes or until casserole is bubbly. (Takes a little longer if refrigerated first.

Freezes well (defrost before baking is best).
