Here is a recipe of my grandmother’s without a name, but it sounds like a stove top dish, so I will called it:
Granny’s Homemade Stop-top Dinner
2 pounds ground meat (I like hamburger, but I suppose you could use any type of ground meat)
1 can cream of mushroom soup (I used cream of celery soup)
1 can corn
1 can pitted olives, sliced
1 can tomato paste
1 Lipton onion soup
1 ¾ cup water (I added a total of 3 cups water, to make sure the noodles cooked all the way through.)
8 ounce package of egg noodles crushed
Cook meat until crumbles apart and red is gone. Put onion soup and water and cook a little while then mix all other ingredients into meat and bake about 45 minutes. Don’t precook noodles, just put them in.
*Note: even though it says bake, I am thinking you just cook this on the stove top, like you would hamburger helper type meal.
OMG!!! This really surprised me! It was really good and I can't wait to try adding my own veggies and cooking stove-top meals from scratch! I never knew how much tomato paste can thicken a sauce so quickly. Will be adding fresh or frozen vegetables to this recipe or not adding the noodles and trying rice. I think the basic sauce can go with many different dishes, even adding cooked chicken cubes or shredded instead of a ground meat. Anyway, it was delicious!!! Try it and let me know how you cook it up.
