  • 1 pound lean ground beef
  • 1 medium onion (quartered, sliced)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 cups fine noodles (about 4 ounces, uncooked)
  • 1 (about 15 ounces) can cream-style corn
  • 1 (10 3/4 ounces) can condensed cream of celery or cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 soup can of water

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. Preheat the oven to 350 F/180 C/Gas 4. Lightly butter a 2-quart baking dish.

  3. In a large skillet or saute pan, brown the ground beef, breaking it up into chunks as it cooks.

  4. Drain off excess grease; stir in onion, salt, pepper, and Worcestershire sauce. Continue to cook, stirring constantly, for about 3 minutes.

  5. Spoon mixture into the prepared baking dish. Top with the uncooked noodles. Combine corn, soup, and water in a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, stirring constantly. Pour sauce over noodles; stir gently to blend the sauce with the noodles and ground beef.
