Another freezer meal! Christy (a fellow poster) found this site and recipe for me. It looked easy and delicious. The only thing that worried me is that it had a lot of tomato in it, which my husband is not a fan of. But I gave it a try.
- 1lb ground beef
- 1 can tomato soup
- 6 oz can tomato paste
- 2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
- 2 Tbsp Italian seasoning
- 1 can (15oz) corn, drained
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1-2 cups shredded cheese (depending on your “cheesiness” preference)
- Brown Ground beef with onion powder and garlic powder. Drain.
- Cook noodles according to package, drain
- In a large bowl, combine soup, tomato paste, Italian seasoning, noodles and ground beef. Stir in corn.
- Transfer to an ungreased 8X8 freezer baking dish and top with cheese. (Instead of doing this, I just mixed everything into a 1 gallon freezer bag. Helps with storage space.)
- Cover with foil. Use heavy duty foil and double wrap it to prevent freezer burn. Label and freeze.
For after freezing:
Cooking instructions: Thaw and bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes until heated through and melted cheese.
Conclusion: This was so easy to make and delicious! I doubled the recipe and put one in the freezer for later. It was a sweet goulash which I prefer, you may not. A few things I would have changed would have been adding extra veggies like onion and peppers. Maybe some fresh tomatoes. And I bet you could add a Mexican swing to it by adding jalapenos and Tabasco sauce. However, it turned out very good and my tomato hating husband enjoyed it immensely. Yes! And another meal in the freezer!
