Default Old standby

Dad was a meat & potato guy. We rarely had a hot dish but our Home Ec teacher gave us this recipe (1960ís) and I still make it.
Peel & cut up potatoes, cabbage, carrots, celery, onion in medium chunks. I add parsnips too. Boil in water until done then drain in colander. Brown ground beef with onion, salt & pepper. Combine meat & vegetables. Add 1 or 2 cans condensed tomato soup & fold in. Made all on top of the stove. I add tomato juice to leftovers if needed & reheat in oven.

My first casserole was a recipe we made in Home Ec class. Our meals at home were separate foods, never mixed up. I still make it. It's was named Tallarine. I remember my grandmother saying it cost too much to make with all that cheese. LOL We rarely ate cheese except on sandwiches. I'll try your recipe very soon!


3 Tablespoons butter
1 medium size onion, minced
1 lb. ground beef
1-10 1/2 oz. can tomatoe soup
1 1/2 cups cold water
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups uncooked wide noodles
1 can whole corn
1 cup grated cheddar cheese

Melt butter; add onion and saute over low heat until onion is tender. Add ground beef and cook until browned. Add tomatoe soup, water, salt, noodles, and corn. Mix; cover and cook slowly 10 minutes. Sprinkle with grated cheddar cheese. Cover; steam 25 - 30 minutes.
