Beef Lombardi

While it may appear to be a gourmet dish, Beef Lombardi is essentially a combination of ground beef and chopped tomatoes spooned over creamy noodles, topped with cheese and baked. It’s an excellent make-ahead recipe since you can construct and freeze the casserole for up to a month.

Ingredients:

1 pound ground beef

1 28 oz can tomatoes

2 cloves minced garlic

2 tsp honey

2 tsp salt

black pepper

ยฝ tsp Tabasco sauce

1 bay leaf

1 pkg egg noodles, cooked

1 8oz pkg cream cheese

6 green onions, chopped

1 cup sour cream

2 cups grated Cheddar cheese

Instructions:

Brown beef over medium heat. Drain fat. Add garlic and cook until soft. Add tomatoes, honey, salt, pepper, bay leaf and Tabasco. Lower the heat to simmer for 30 minutes.

Combine the cooked noodles with the cream cheese, green onions and sour cream. Grease a 9 X 13 pan and alternately layer noodle mixture, tomato mixture and grated cheese, ending with the cheese on top.

Bake covered, in a preheated 350 degree oven, for 30 minutes or until heated through and bubbly. You can freeze this before or after baking.
