Bammicetti

This is a casserole my Mom used to make, and she called it Bammicetti. I looked up the word, however, and it's nowhere to be found. So I'm not sure where she originally got that name. Probably from a magazine like Women's Day.

Anyway, it's easy to make and can stretch a pound of beef for a few days so I'm all for that. Sorry again for the lack of photo. I took some nice ones but apparently my camera Flash Card is unloadable onto the computer.

Bammicetti

1 lb of ground beef (I used ground chuck)
2 large yellow onions
1 bunch of celery
1 15oz can of peeled crushed tomatoes
2 cups (uncooked) of pasta or egg noodles (I like to use tri-colored corkscrew)
1/2 cup Fresh cilantro chopped
salt, pepper, Italian seasoning to taste.
1 cup of grated cheese (I like romano but anything hard cheese works)


• Chop and brown the onions and celery in a little olive oil until golden. Set them aside in a large casserole dish.

• Brown, season and stir the ground beef, then add to the casserole dish. Open the can of tomatoes and mix everything together.

• Cook pasta or noodles to package instructions, drain but don't rinse. Then add to the casserole.

• Top with grated cheese and cook in 350º oven for 40 min.

Voila!

It sorta sounds like a homemade Hamburger Helper. Real comfort food!

I guess it kind of is. But it's less homogenous looking. And hopefully better tasting. I haven't had HH.

You're not missing much, except about 200% of your daily sodium intake. This sounds much better! I'm all for the "homemade" versions of Hamburger Helper. Wow, what an interesting thought. At one time I'm sure HH was seen as a quick version of the homemade and now somehow their roles are reversed (in my mind at least)
