You know, I'm not a huge fan of ground beef and macaroni casserole. But I guess it's a classic for a reason!

This sounds like a meal that my family would really enjoy. The recipe seems like a stroganoff style pasta casserole. Egg noodles could be substituted for the macaroni. For a healthier version, I would use lean ground beef, and drain it after cooking, before adding the other ingredients. To ensure that the pasta is a good consistency in the casserole, it should be drained before it is done. The pasta will continue to cook in the oven.

The perfect recipe for singles like me. You can make a whole casserole and divide and freeze your leftovers for other meals. Plus, it's really easy, uses basic pantry ingredients and needs almost no prep - maybe 15 minutes? This would also be a great dish for a potluck or to serve at a casual gathering.
