My family loved this meal today. It's frugal and easy and has most of the food groups in it!
-1 lb ground beef
-1/2 cup finely chopped celery
-1 cup finely chopped carrots
-1 large onion, chopped
(Cook these together in large pot until beef has browned,drain if necessary.)
-5 cups uncooked egg noodles
(Cook in lightly salted water, just until tender.)
Toss pasta in beef mixture, along with;
-5 medium-sized kale leaves, chopped
-Add 1 1/2 cups milk and
-1/2 cup heavy cream (or half and half, or just use all milk).
-Add 1/4 cup powdered Ranch dressing/seasoning mix.
Simmer on low for 5 to 10 minutes until sauce has thickened.
*Tip: Kick it up by adding a little crumbled bacon when serving.
Served here with Crispy Rustic Spelt Rolls.
