Grandma's Casserole

This week the boys are on Spring Break. I had this scheduled for dinner earlier, but a friend of our asked if they could bring us dinner (woo hoo!) so I made this for lunch the next day- and yes, it's sitting next to our week-long Monopoly game (in which Luke is winning... must be why he likes to play... hm).
Anyway, this is really tasty.

Grandma's Casserole

1 lb. ground meat
1/4 c onion, chopped
1/4 c. green pepper chopped
6 oz can tomato paste
10 oz can italian tomatoes
15 oz can creamed corn
12 oz. pasta, cooked
1 to 2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
Brown meat, onion and green pepper in oven proof skillet, over medium heat. Add tomato paste, tomatoes and corn, mix well. Stir in cooked pasta, mix thoroughly. Top w/ cheese and bake at 350 until cheese is melted.

I love the cost break down! :) Looks good. I've got the cost breakdown for most of our meals now too :o)

I made this last night, and my children LOVED it. I changed it a little - we're vegetarian, so I left out the meat. I also used tomato sauce and whole kernal corn, as that was what I had on hand.

So yummy!
