Vermicelli Surprise

Well this one surprised me, and came out tasting (according to all 3 of us) like hamburger helper but a lot more work!!!!

365 Quick, Easy & Inexpensive Dinner Menus
Penny E. Stone
page 114

1lb ground beef
2 chopped onions
minced garlic
1/4 cup margarine
2 cups fresh sliced mushrooms
1 can creamed corn
2 cans tomato soup
3 soup cans of water
salt and pepper
8oz of uncooked vermicelli pasta (that is 1/4 of a normal bag)
Optional: 1 cup grated cheese

In a large skillet melt margarine and sautee onion, garlic and ground beef.
**note: we had to move this to a pot, so you might want to start with a pot!
Add mushrooms, corn and soup with the water and stir well.
Heat until almost boiling.
**note: this sticks/burns very quickly, so watch very carefully!
Add vermicelli and stir well.
When pasta is tender, pour into a casserole dish.
**note: again this burnt to the bottom quickly so maybe a greased dish?
Bake at 300 for 30 minutes.
Remove and stir.
Add cheese
and bake 15-20 minutes more.
Serve with salad and garlic bread.

We did not dislike this but it was not a unanimous favourite,
(especially because I don't like mushrooms)...
and again Judy (12) was able to make this on her own.

"Bon Appetit!"
