Home On The Ranch (one dish meal)

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
