Bare Cupboard Casserole
45 mins (prep 5, cooking 40)
8 ingredients
3 servings
This is a dish I created when the cupboard was getting pretty bare. It tastes great and is very easy to make, so it's a great week-night dish when your back's to the wall with no time and everyone is hungry. Even though the recipe calls for Lawry's taco seasoning, other brands (or homemade) would work equally well. I made this with macaroni, but other small pasta would be just as good. If you use regular tomatoes instead of roma tomatoes, add in a good squirt of ketchup or tomato sauce or paste to make up for the lack of tomato pulp.
