Beef & Mozzarella Bake

This is a recipe we have had for a while. I just haven't made it in forever. We liked this.

Beef & Mozzarella Bake

Campbell’s Classic Recipes, page 48
Prep Time: 15 min Cook Time: 25 min

1 pound ground beef
1 can Tomato Soup
1 Can Cream of Mushroom Soup
1 1/4 cup water
1 tsp basil
1/4 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 1/2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
4 cups hot cooked medium shell macaroni (about 3 cups uncooked) (or use elbow macaroni, 2 cups uncooked)

In medium skillet over medium-high heat, cook beef until browned, stirring to separate meat. Pour off fat. Add soups, water, basil, pepper, garlic powder, 1 cup cheese and macaroni. Spoon into 2 qt shallow baking dish. Bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes. Stir. Sprinkle remaining cheese over beef mixture. Bake 5 minutes more or until cheese is melted.

I did a couple things differently. When I cooked the macaroni I also put in frozen peas so it had some veggies to it. You could also do a pea/carrot mixture. I used shredded cheddar cheese along with the mozzarella cheese too.
