#127_Ground Beef Alfredo 'N Breadsticks

This casserole is super simple and super easy to make
and yet very appetizing.
It is a recycled idea from the
Sweet Potato Alfredo Casserole recipe #99, click here.

It only takes a few ingredients such as ground beef,
veggies, condensed soup, Alfredo sauce, shredded cheese,
and a can of refrigerated bread sticks.
Cooking is a breeze specially when you
have the meat ready like store-bought
rotisserie chicken
Of course you can use any kind of meat
you want or you can even go meatless.

I already have browned ground beef in the freezer ready to use.
I just thawed it out in the microwave.

If using fresh ground beef
here is what you need to do:
1) Brown ground beef with chopped onions in a skillet without any oil, over medium high heat until the meat is no longer pink.
2) Put browned meat in a colander to drain off fat.
3) Spread this mixture in a deep baking dish, about 3 inches high.
4) In a pot over medium heat, combine the veggies, Alfredo sauce and the condensed soup. Season with salt and pepper if desired. Cook until just bubbly.
5) Spread this mixture over the meat.
6) Spread some shredded cheese on top. I prefer pizza blend which is a combination of mozzarella, provolone and romano cheeses, or you can use any kind.

7) Arrange the bread sticks on top of the cheese. You can lay them flat or twist them as you lay them on the cheese.
8) Cover the casserole loosely with aluminum foil.
9) Pop it in a pre-heated 350 degrees oven and bake it for 45 minutes. Take out the aluminum foil and continue to bake for another 15 minutes until the breadsticks are light brown.

This dish is a complete meal in itself
and it is very good in every bite!
Kids love it as well as adults.

1) I usually use store-bought frozen vegetables and I don't need to thaw them out.
suggested vegetable combinations: asparagus, cauliflower, broccoli, green beans, squash
2) If using fresh vegetables, you might want to blanch them first.
