Cool weather is starting to move into NC and gets the taste buds all fired up for soups, stews and casseroles. This one is an oldie but goody from my childhood and Nannie's house..


• 1 medium onion - diced
• 1 green pepper – diced
• 1 T butter
• 1 ½ lbs ground round
• 1 t Seasoning Salt
• ½ t pepper
• 1 t sugar
• 3 small cloves garlic
• 15 oz can tomato sauce
• 28 oz can crushed tomatoes
• 2 C Water
• 8 oz wide egg noodles
• 12 ox shredded mozzarella – divided in half


Preheat oven to 350.

In a Dutch oven, sauté the onion and green pepper in the butter, the add ground beef and brown. Drain the fat. Add in the seasonings, tomato paste, crushed tomatoes and water. Heat to boiling, then reduce the heat and simmer for 15 minutes.

Using a large casserole dish layer the meat sauce, uncooked noodles 6 oz of the mozzarella, then remaining sauce and remaining cheese. Cover with foil and bake for 45 minutes. (I uncover for the last 5 to 10 minutes)

Serve it up and put a fork in it!
