What You'll Need

  • 12 ounces wide egg noodles
  • 1 pound ground chuck
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 (8-ounce) package fresh mushrooms, sliced

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cook noodles according to package directions; drain and keep warm.
  2. Meanwhile, cook ground chuck in a large skillet, stirring until it crumbles and is no longer pink. Drain and return to skillet. Stir in onion, bell pepper, and mushrooms. Cover and cook over medium-high heat 10 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally.
  3. Stir in beef broth, tomato paste and oregano; set aside.

As others have mentioned, this is a 'poor man's' lasagna not stroganoff but tasty nonetheless. There are many hamburger stroganoff recipes around if you want that particular taste. We love the hamburger variety at our home. When you add tomato paste oregano and cheese you have crossed the line to lasagna.

This reminded me of lasagna not stroganoff, but it was still good.

This casserole is nothing like beef stroganoff but is a good casserole.

Very, very good! Will make it often.

I have pancreatitis and sour cream doesn't sit well with me is there something I can substute or maybe just eliminate it from the recipe

Hello! You can substitute with ricotta cheese or plain yogurt. If these options don't work for you either, then just leave it out. You'll still have a tasty dish. :)

Good but my family prefers black olives to green pepper.

This was really very good. I have a problem with the name, though, as this didn't really have much to do with stroganoff. It was much more like lasagna than stroganoff. I also found the baking time to be off quite a bit. Probably went 50-60 minutes total until it was hot and bubbly. Probably won't make again as I have several really good lasagna recipes.

I made this and my family loved it. I used whole wheat spirals in it and the flavor was delicious. I originally found this recipe in one of Mr Food's Cookbooks it is from Ooh-It's-So-Easy Recipe Collection and in the binder that says meats. I will definitely be making this again.

has anyone tried freezing this?

Every ingredient in this recipe is very "freezer friendly". I've made similar dishes of this type with great results after freezing. Just remember to completely thaw first before baking, or increase your cooking time by a good 40 to 45 minutes if baking from frozen.

I got this on email the other day and it's cold here in Upstate N.Y. so I decided to make it tonight! It was a huge hit! I didn't change a thing although I must admit I was worried it would be dry... but it wasn't... it was soooooooo good! God rest his soul.

Sounds SO GOOD but since getting hooked on "Mr. Food" I've gained 10 pounds. Think I'll use ground turkey and low fat sour cream, cottage cheese, and mozzarella - maybe that will help!!

I hear you there!!!! I've also downloaded all his ecookbooks and put them in a binder. Looks like my elliptical is going to get an extensive workout because of Mr Food!!! But keep those great recipes coming!!!

I hear you, as Mr. Food's recipes are not recipes with regard to lower fat, calories, or carbs...but I always try to 'slim them down' a bit - in much the same manner as you do. I've made it a point to (only) prepare one "Mr. Food" recipe a week, so that's working out pretty well. I love his recipes, but yeah....they're not always very 'waist or heart-friendly'. I try to work around that as best as I can. Good luck to you, and let's all try to keep eating healthier in the future.

what can you substitute for the cottage cheese?

ricotta could be substituted!

I've been making this recipe at least 30 years. I've never used cottage cheese. I always use ricotta cheese. The recipe is great! I also call my recipe "Poor Mans Lasagna". I hope this helps you.

THis is Simply Delicious! An olidie but goodie and was called Dairy Casserole because of the 3 dairy products used in this But we used shredded cheddar cheese instead of the mozzerella and parmesan Very good either way just a matter of choice
