Minestrone Casserole

Here is a great example of what you can make out of the pantry! A box of “hamburger helper” lasagna/ can of corn/ can of tomatoes: leads us to this unique casserole meal with the taste of Minestrone soup! While you could use hamburger for this we choose to cut up a piece of bottom round in strips.

One of my neighbors just went on the medicine “Coumadin”. While this is effective against “A-Fib”, the regiment is a pain to learn and follow. So we checked out just what she would be allowed to eat. This meal fits the bill with no problems.


1 lb lean (at least 80%) ground beef
1 medium onion, chopped (1/2 cup)
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 box “Hamburger Helper™” lasagna
1 Cup water
½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
2 medium stalks celery, sliced (1 cup)
1 can (15.25 oz) whole kernel corn, undrained
1 can (14.5 oz) stewed tomatoes, undrained
Grated Parmesan cheese, if desired


Heat oven to 400ºF.

Do your cutting: chop the onions. Chop the garlic, carefully prying out any green shoots.

Chop the celery and slice the meat into ½ inch thick strips.

Having all of the cutting done makes everything go easier for you.

In 12-inch skillet, brown the beef strips.

Once browned, remove and add onion and garlic over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, drain.

Stir in uncooked Pasta, Sauce Mix and remaining ingredients except cheese.

 Pour into ungreased 3-quart casserole.
Cover; bake 45 minutes. Serve with cheese.

So happy that an easy meal makes such great taste!
