Mama's Surprise

Tonight I needed to get dinner ready in a hurry, I'm sure you're thinking how is this different but I was exhausted from work and my paper and didn't want to stand around cooking for an hour. Anyway, I had been toying with a recipe in my head for a while so I decided to give it a try. The kids have named it "Mama's Surprise", lol.

***Mama's Surprise***

Ingredients:
1 bell pepper
1lb lean ground meat
1 package of onion soup mix
1 28oz can of whole tomatoes in tomato juice
2 cloves of garlic
1lb extra wide egg noodles
seasoning to taste

Directions:
Saute chopped garlic in a little bit of oil. Season and brown the meat. Add bell pepper and stir. Add onion soup mix, tomatoes and tomato juice and 2 cups of water (may need to add salt to taste). Stir crushing tomatoes and add noodles. Cover and let simmer for 10 minutes.

I used the following seasonings:
crushed red pepper flakes
taco seasoning
Garlic Pepper w/ red bell & black pepper.

I was out of the kitchen in less than 30 minutes and the kids (and Sammy) loved it :) Let me know how you like it. :) Did you add anything to make it more special? I wanna hear from you :) Bon App├ętit!

Actually sounds pretty healthy. I might try to make this with mom (with whole wheat noodles, though!!)
