Hello! I hope you’re feeling awesome. And hungry, because, today I’m sharing an Easy Cheesy Beef Casserole recipe that you are going to love!

As I mentioned the other day, with everyone being at home, I’ve been making a lot of family favorites.

But, I’ve been trying to throw in some new recipes and experiments into the dinner loop, as well.

And that’s where this Easy Cheesy Beef Casserole comes into the picture…

I wanted to try a traditional Beef Lombardi recipe last week, but I was missing a few of the ingredients.

So, instead of scrapping the idea, I used a few substitutes that I had and then, I left a few ingredients out altogether.

And it turned out amazing!

In fact, it has a very similar taste to my Creamy Baked Ziti and everyone loves that.

But, honestly, I like the texture of the egg noodles a whole lot better than ziti in this creamy sauce!

And because the traditional Beef Lombardi calls for cheddar cheese, I stuck with it, instead of switching it out for mozzarella, as I considered doing.

Surprisingly, the cheddar works perfectly with the tomato and cream sauce, adding just enough salt and an additional creaminess that you wouldn’t get with mozzarella.

So, I ask you again…are you hungry, yet?


Now get in the kitchen and start making this Easy Cheesy Beef Casserole!

Here’s the recipe…
