Clean out the pantry, frig, and freezer casserole

Threw this together after work. On the table in about 1 hour. Had a side salad. Honey Crisp Apples for dessert.

6 oz. (1/2 package) no yolk broad egg noodles
1 lb. ground beef
1 medium onion, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
1 large carrot, thinly sliced
1 banana pepper, diced
1/2 small red bell pepper, diced
1, 14.5 oz. can diced tomatoes
1, 6 oz. can tomato paste
1 teaspoon Mrs. Dash (registered trademark) table blend
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
4 oz. shredded white cheddar cheese.

Boil noodles according to package directions until tender, drain and keep warm. Meanwhile, brown ground beef in deep skillet. Drain. Add onion, celery, carrot, peppers, diced tomatoes, tomato paste and Mrs. Dash to skillet. Bring to boil. Cover and reduce heat and simmer 15 minutes. Stir in noodles and Parmesan. Pour into greased 3 quart casserole dish. Bake in 350 F oven for 30 minutes. Top with cheddar cheese to serve. Serves 8.

We cook low sodium so we salted this at the table. You could season it with 1 teaspoon salt OR 1 tablespoon Worchestershire sauce OR 1 tablespoon soy sauce.
