RECIPE ~ Family Favorite Casserole (I made this tonight, it was great!)

Family Favorite Casserole

1 pound ground beef, browned & drained
1 medium onion, chopped (Phyllis only used 1/4 cup)
1 1/2 cups diced potatoes
1 1/2 cups BABY carrots, cut in thirds (Phyllis substituted 1/4 cup diced tomatoes)
1/2 or so of salt
1 can (10 oz) cream of mushroom or cream of chicken soup

1/2 cup milk
1 1/2 cups cooked macaroni pasta
2 cups grated cheddar cheese
(Phyllis added handful of partially-cooked broccoli at this time)

Combine all ingredients, except milk, macaroni pasta and cheese (and broccoli) in a greased 3 1/2 to 6 quart slow cooker.
Stir to combine. Cover & cook on low heat 6-10 hours or on high for 3-4 hours.
Stir in milk & cooked macaroni during last 30min of cooking on low, or last 15min if on high.
Sprinkle with grated cheese before serving. Makes 6-8 servings.
