One Casserole Out of 101 {A Gooseberry Patch Review & Giveaway}

I just love when my friends at Gooseberry Patch ask me to take a look at one of their cookbooks and then share with all of you what I think. One, I get a new cookbook, which is one of my most favorite things in the world. Two, I get to share the same book with one of you (yes, there is a giveaway....just keep reading). But the biggest reason why I love when they "come calling" is because it always means a new yummy recipe for my family to enjoy. You can never go wrong with a Gooseberry Patch recipe! They are always simple, and always 100% delicious. Plus this time the cookbook combines 2 of my loves...Gooseberry Patch and casseroles! I've said it before and I will again, a great casserole is a busy mom's best friend! And "101 Cozy Casseroles" is full of new friends for you to meet! 
When I started going through the pages I had quite a few jump out at me as possibilities I wanted to try. But when I came to the one I finally ended up choosing, there was a simple reason for it. I am so hungry for chili, but am waiting for autumn to make it! Why? Well, for one reason, my "boys" don't really enjoy it in the summer time as much as they do in cooler weather; and two, I always make my chili with ground buffalo, and our freezer is currently buffalo poor. (Mr. Everyday, if you're reading this, that's a hint...)

So when I found this recipe that uses canned chili and ground beef, I knew I could satisfy my craving in the form of a new easy casserole great any night of the week, any time of the year!! If you are always looking for new casserole ideas too, this cookbook belongs in your kitchen. So be sure to check out how to win a copy of your very own!

Oodles of Noodles Chili Bake
12 oz. pkg. wide egg noodles, uncooked
1 lb. ground beef
1 (14.5oz) can diced tomatoes
1 (15oz.) can corn, drained
1 (15oz.) can chili (I chose without beans)
1 c. shredded cheddar cheese, divided

Cook noodles according to package directions; drain and set aside. meanwhile, brown beef in a skillet over medium heat; drain. Combine tomatoes with juice and remaining ingredients except 1/4 cup cheese in a lightly greased 9x13 baking dish. Top with remaining cheese. Bake, uncovered at 350 for 20 minutes or until heated through.
*NOTE* I served this with some "toppings" just like my chili: Finely diced onion, sliced jalapenos and extra cheese.

We loved the oodles of noodles chili bake. I am so happy to finally have recipes that do not require me to go buy weird ingredients or spices that I probably will never use again. The grandchildren loved all the noodles especially.

There are so many to choose from but I think my favorite is tater tot because I can make it with different vegetables and different soup toppings depending on who I may be making it for at the time. My daughter and I like peas with cream of mushroom soup and my son likes it with green beans and cheese.
I am going to try your Oodles of Noodles Chili Bake sometime soon.

I am pretty boring. My favorite casserole would probably be chicken with rice and broccoli and cheese.... as you can see this cookbook would probably make my family very happy! :)
Thank you.
