This is definitely kid approved. My daughter is the pickiest eater; she and even her friends will ask for it again and again.

  • Stir gravy mix, water, and milk together in a bowl until dissolved and smooth.

  • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and crumble in ground beef; add onion, mushrooms, and garlic. Cook and stir until the beef is evenly browned, 10 to 15 minutes. Drain and discard any excess grease.

  • Stir gravy mixture, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, Italian seasoning, oregano, and basil into ground beef mixture. Season with salt and pepper. Bring beef-tomato mixture to a boil, reduce heat, cover skillet with a lid, and simmer until heated through, 10 minutes.

  • Stir Cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, and egg noodles into beef-tomato mixture; pour entire mixture into a 9x13-inch casserole dish. Top casserole with Parmesan cheese. Cover dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until cheese is melted and noodles are cooked, about 25 minutes.

Partner Tip

Reynolds® Aluminum foil can be used to keep food moist, cook it evenly, and make clean-up easier.

This is a wonderfully delicious recipe. I love making casseroles and this will be one of my top favorites. The changes I made were I used beef broth in pace of the water and used cooked noodles in place of uncooked. ( Have had way too many times when the uncooked noodles or rice not get completely cooked in the oven. ) But other than those 2 little adjustments the tastes are wonderful. To anyone who reads this make sure you DO NOT substitute powdered onion or garlic always use fresh. Read More

The noodles were not cooked evenly. It tasted a lot like Hamburger Helper. My husband liked it. I couldn't stand the smell the look or the taste of it. I would definitely suggest cooking the noodles before baking. Read More

Wonderful! Hubby and son loved it! And they can both be hard to please. It goes without out saying that this will be a regular dish. I added sliced black olives and some red chili powder. I will likely always add olives if I have them and may or may not add the chili powder. (my guys like spice). Read More

Worked great with Tinkyada Brown Rice Spirals with Rice Bran to make it gluten free. These noodles cooked perfectly as directed. The only diced tomatoes I had were Rotel mild with green chilies which gave it a nice little kick. Read More

Really good. I cooked the noodles and left out the canned mushrooms. Why would anyone use canned mushrooms? I would have tossed in some fresh ones but was out of them. Next time I will put them in with the onions and ground beef. I also used the low sodium version of Brown Gravy. Read More

Loved it! And the kids loved it! I haven't even gotten a complaint about the mushrooms...! And I followed the recipe except I used two 8 oz cans tomato sauce and one 14 oz can diced tomatoes with basil oregano and garlic. Will make again! Read More
