Ground Beef Macaroni Casserole - Recipe

 This past week DH was away which meant it was the perfect time to test out some new recipes on the kiddos. I was sort of surprised that this one was a huge hit with Nate for he is not a fan of tomatoes but he went to town on this dish.
The meal was filling, flavorful and made a HUGE amount. I can tell you that I went ahead and froze a good portion for a later date. Most of the ingredients you probably have in your kitchen and the whole meal can be put together in less than 10 minutes. 

The soup, butter, milk, parsley, and egg.
