  • 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, and rinse with cold water.

  • Place the bacon into a Dutch oven or enameled casserole dish over medium heat, and cook until just starting to soften, 3 to 4 minutes; add the ground beef, onion, and green pepper, and cook and stir until the meat is browned and the vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Drain excess fat. Mix in the cooked noodles, mushrooms, and diced tomatoes until thoroughly combined. Sprinkle the Parmesan cheese over the mixture, and pour the tomato juice over the casserole.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until browned and bubbling, about 1 hour.

I really enjoyed this. Reminds me of my moms goulash except it has bacon in it. The only change I made was I used tomato sauce instead of juice and mixed the tomato sauce in with the ingredients and topped mine with parmesan and motzorella cheese. This was yummy. Read More

Sounds like what we used to call slumgullion also known as American Chop Suey minus the bacon. Read More

A very family friendly recipe. I used fire roasted tomatoes about 1/2 tsp of oregano 1/4 tsp cumin 1 clove of minced garlic and a pinch of sugar. My husband and 21 month old son both loved it! Read More

This was very good Anytime I try a new recipe and the whole family eats it it deserves 5 stars. I would add a tad more green pepper next time I cook it to suit my individual taste. Read More

This dish was ok. My husband actually really liked it. For me it was a bland tasting goulash. I couldn't taste the bacon and ended up vamping it up with some mild cheddar cheese. I won't say it was horrible; but probably not something that I would make again. Read More
