Zesty Beef and Pasta

DH really liked this one. He usually doesn't eat vegetables, so any chance for me to sneak vegetables into his diet is a success.


1 lb extra-lean ground beef
1 green pepper, sliced up
1 cup chopped onion
14 oz can stewed tomatoes
12 oz can corn, drained
2 cups egg noodles
4 oz can green chilies, drained
1 package taco seasoning
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 cup grated cheese, Monterrey Jack or Mozzarella

Preheat oven to 350. Cook beef, onion, and peppers in skillet until beef is cooked and vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Drain, and add tomatoes, juice and all. Stir to mix well. Add all remaining ingredients, except noodles. Cook and stir about 5 minutes. Pour noodles in sprayed casserole dish. Top with meat and vegetable mixture from pan. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for about 25 minutes. Stir once. Sprinkle with cheese. Bake uncovered for an additional 10 minutes.
This makes about 6 servings. 1 serving = 315 calories, 15 grams of fat, and 30 carbs
