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


Karu

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).
