This hearty little dish really hit the spot on this cold, wintry night.
I had everything I needed to make it in the freezer and pantry. Having the ground beef already cooked and in the freezer was a great help in getting this on the table, too.
The kids and Larry love this! I served it with a loaf of fresh baked homemade bread! Yum!
For a super easy version of this dish, cook noodles and top with heated canned or jarred chili. Add a tablespoon of Italian seasonings when you heat the chili, if you like. There are several more healthful varieties of canned/jarred chili available. Serve with a loaf French bread or Texas toast from your freezer.
