Cheesy Ground Beef Casserole

  • Author: Mavis Butterfield



12 ounces Bag egg noodles uncooked
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 lb lean ground beef
1 onion finely chopped
2 teaspoons minced garlic
16 ounces marinara sauce {we used Rao’s}
15 ounce can fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon dried oregano
1 teaspoon dried basil
1 1/22 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon butter


Preheat oven to 375 F. Butter a 9 x 13 casserole dish and set aside.

Cook the egg noodles according to the package directions. While the egg noodles are cooking, add 1 teaspoon of olive oil to a cooking pan and brown the ground beef with the onion until beef is cooked through. Add minced garlic and cook an additional 2 minutes. Add the marinara sauce, fire roasted tomatoes, spices and toss to combine.

Drain the egg noodles and add them to the sauce mixture, covering the noodles with sauce. Pour the mixture into a buttered casserole dish and top with cheddar cheese. Bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until cheese is slightly browned and bubbling.
