Amish Country Casserole

by Amy D

Amish country casserole is the perfect main dish for those busy weeknights. It’s easy, budget-friendly, and filling. This cozy casserole is made with ground beef, noodles, an easy homemade sauce (without cream of mushroom soup) and topped off with Parmesan cheese.

You know, even though I live right near Missouri Amish country, I’m not sure that this is technically an Amish recipe. Even if it’s not 100%  authentic, does that really matter? It’s still a super easy weeknight meal that’s quick to get on the table.

Maybe you’ve had this casserole before. I’ll warn you mine’s just a little bit different.

My Amish country casserole recipe does not have cream of mushroom soup in it. It’s not that I hate cream of mushroom soup. I’m allergic to mushrooms. So I’ve changed this recipe so that I could still eat it. And as an added bonus, without the cream of mushroom soup, you can omit the baking that comes along with most recipes for Amish country casserole, because it all cooks together on the stove top.

However, if you like crispy edges on your noodles, you can still throw it in the oven. 😉A serving of Amish Country Casserole on a white plate with a fork to the side.

What you’ll need to make this casserole:
Egg noodles or Rotini
Ground beef
Chopped onion
Paprika
Garlic salt
Pepper
Flour
Beef broth
Tomato soup
Milk
Parmesan cheese

To make Amish Country Casserole:

You’ll start by cooking the noodles according to the package directions and draining them well. Meanwhile, brown together 1 lb of ground beef and the diced onion. Do not drain the grease.

To the ground beef add the paprika, garlic salt, pepper, and flour. Stir it together well until the spices are completely incorporated into the beef.

Over medium heat cook and stir the beef while slowly adding the broth, milk, and tomato soup.

Bring the mixture to a simmer until the sauce thickens.

When the sauce has thickened add the cooked noodles and heat thru.Top the casserole off with shredded Parmesan cheese and a bit of dried parsley.

This easy meal goes great with veggies and fruit salad

Note: This recipe makes a big batch! 8-10 servings! If this is too much for your family feel free to freeze half of it to have later! 

Freezer instructions: Prepare as directed and then tightly cover in a freezer safe pan.  To reheat the casserole, let the casserole thaw in the fridge for 24 hours. Then bake at 350 degrees for 25-30 minutes.

This is just a variation of Johnny Marzetti casserole.

I agree there are some similarities, but I think they are pretty different overall. One thing’s for certain. They’ve both got that hearty and filling Mid-Western flair going on.
