Original Recipe Ingredients:
1 can condensed tomato soup
1 pound ground meat (hamburger, turkey, chicken, venison)
1 green bell pepper
1 pound box of cooked elbow macaroni (other versions you can sub other small noodles)
2 cups cheddar cheese
1 chopped onion
1/2 a package chopped mushrooms
1. Prepare a 9x13 dish (spray with pam) and preheat oven to 375°.
2. Mix the RAW ground meat with tomato soup, chopped green bell pepper, cooked macaroni, and any other optional ingredients.
3. Pat mixture into 9x13 dish, top with cheese
4. Bake for 30-45 minutes until cheese is brown.
A little FYI -The ground meat in this recipe will not turn brown like normal cooked meat - it will remain a reddish/pink color due to the tomato soup. Traditional American Chop Suey doesn't have cheddar cheese (they sprinkle on parmasean after baking), but I learned it with cheddar cheese - so it's what we use!
Let it set for a few minutes and then serve with a gorgeous salad and some bread!! Delish!
