More Casserole

Updated on March 23, 2010

The cheese is key!

Onion and bell pepper add zip!

Chop them finer than this.

Why Is It Called More Casserole?

This recipe is from my mother-in-law who said it was called More Casserole because you always wanted more!

2 pounds hamburger

1 large onion, chopped

1/2 bell pepper, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

salt and pepper to taste

2 teaspoons sugar

2 teaspoons chili powder (or more to taste)

1 large can tomato sauce

1 1/2 - 2 cups corn (canned or frozen)

1 1/2 - 2 cups frozen peas

1 large can pitted olives

1 can mushrooms, drained

1 pound elbow macaroni, cooked and drained

3 cups grated cheddar cheese

Fry hamburger, add chopped onion and bell pepper, and garlic. Season with salt and pepper. Drain fat. Add sugar, chili powder, tomato sauce, corn, peas, olives, mushrooms. Add cooked macaroni and mix.  Mix in about 1 cup of the cheese. Pour into a greased casserole dish (I use a greased 9 X 13 X 3 aluminum pan for this, but any casserole dish will work) and top with the remaining cheese. Heat in a 350 F oven until bubbly.

This goes so well - for taste and color - with a green salad with vinaigrette dressing.

      Oh my gosh, I have been looking for a recipe for More for decades. Our babysitter made it once, and I remember how good it was. I've looked for it online before, but no luck finding it. I thought I'd give it one more try today, and here it is! Bless you for sharing it here. I will print it right now, and try making it very soon. Here's hoping after 50+ years it tastes as good as I remember. :)

      I'll definitely try this recipe. I'm so busy during the day that a casserole is the perfect meal idea. I usually put it all together and put it in the fridge, than when I come home I put it in the oven. Thanks for the recipe.
