Taco Casserole

This is just one of those thrown together casseroles that ended up tasting great. I had some leftover ground beef and cooked noodles and needed something for dinner. You could add your own favorite ingredients or use part of a taco seasoning packet instead of the spices I've used.
Taco Casserole
1/2 pound ground beef
1 small onion chopped
8 ounces noodles, cooked according to package
1 cup medium salsa
1/8 teaspoon cumin
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. Season ground beef with cumin, salt, garlic powder and pepper. Brown ground beef and onion over medium heat. Drain. Combine beef mixture, noodles and salsa. Pour into shallow casserole dish. Top with cheese and bake 20-30 minutes or until bubbly.

I usually love anything that tastes Mexican. And yes, I usually have these ingredients on hand, so I'm going to give it a whirl. Thanks for sharing. Diane, Aransas Pass, TX
