How to Make French Onion Casserole
Making this yummy dinner is pretty quick and for the most part hands-off. There are just a couple steps you have to do and they are beyond simple.
First, cook the pasta and drain it. I like to cook until al dente and strain with this nifty strainer I use every time I make pasta.
While the pasta is cooking, brown the ground beef in a skillet and drain the grease out. Add the noodles, ground beef, cream of mushroom soup, and French onion dip to a large bowl and mix together.
Pour everything into a greased 9×13, and top with the fried onions. Make it in this beautiful baking dish and it will feel dressed up!
Bake for about half an hour until everything is warm and creamy and delicious!
