My Grandma Earhart was a wonderful cook. There wasn't anything she made that my family and I didn't love. This casserole of hers was one of my favorites. I hope you will try her casserole recipe and will love it as much as I do. Bon appetite!

  • Heat the vegetable oil with butter in a large skillet over medium heat, and cook the onion, celery, and green pepper until the vegetables are tender, stirring occasionally, about 8 minutes. Mix in the pork sausage, and cook until the meat is browned, breaking it up into crumbles as it cooks, about 8 more minutes. Drain off excess grease. Stir in the tomatoes, garlic powder, basil, sage, and Worcestershire sauce, mixing until well combined.

  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the egg noodles, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 5 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink. Mix the noodles gently into the pork mixture, and place into a 9x12-inch baking dish. Sprinkle the top with Cheddar cheese.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until the cheese is bubbling and browned, 30 to 40 minutes.

Made this for dinner tonight. It was awesome. We all loved it. It's only 3 of us and there is only one helping left. Didn't change a thing. I used fresh veggies out of my garden. Will defiantly make this one again. Thanks for sharing Sandi.

This was a hit with the whole family even without having the cheese to sprinkle on top. I left out the celery since we are not big fans of it but I did add some fresh minced garlic with the onion. I also used fresh mild italian sausage and for those who like things spicier use a spicier sausage. It was a fast meal and served with a salad made a complete meal.
Very tasty - my favorite kind of meal for a cool fall evening! I added fresh garlic to the onion/pepper/celery mix and used whole wheat penne instead of egg noodles because that's what we had on hand. Served it with a fresh green salad - delicious and a hit with the whole family.

It wasn't horrible tasting but was very bland and lacked anything that made it special.
A nice casserole that I liked but my DH really enjoyed. I sautéed the veggies in a little olive oil rather than 3 TB of butter and oil. I had to use an orange bell pepper as that is all I had on hand. I had a package of cooked pulled pork in the freezer that I used in place of the bulk sausage and it worked great. I also had a bag of cooked medium shell pasta that I was wanting to use up so that was in place of the egg noodles. This mixed together very well and the house smell great while it was baking. If I make this again I'm going to up the spices and use fresh garlic in place of the garlic powder. The flavor was very mild and DH spiced his up with Tabasco. The casserole was served with 'Cranberry Salad' and 'School Lunchroom Cafeteria Rolls' both from AR.
Made this tonight and it was a hit! Was super easy to make! My anti-veggie toddler ate every bite even! So a definite win for me!
This was awesome!!!I used stewed tomatoes as that was the only thing I had on hand.I also used fettuccini as i didnt have any egg noodles...Also no green peppers so I had used the orange yellow and red peppers only...OMG this was so good so knowing I didnt have the green peppers tomatoes and egg noodles I know it would have had the same effect on the meal itself...For my critic of a 17yr son that thinks he is a better cook than me he liked it alot...A keeper!!!
I love the recipe but I think either more cheddar or possibly change the cheese to mozzarella. This also reminds me of goulash so I may choose to only complete the recipe on stove top in the future. Really good as is though!!
