Dutch Oven Dinner

We finally used one of our wedding gifts. Our new Le Creuset! So technically this was a "French Oven" recipe. It was easy to throw together and made a lot of food. We enjoyed it so I am sure this will be made in our kitchen again. The noodles did get a bit hard on the edges, but that was probably from a change we made. I also kind of like them that way so I was happy about it!

This recipe was pulled from Annie's Eats and originated from Whole Foods. My changes are noted below. Enjoy!

1 lb. lean ground sirloin
1⁄2 medium yellow onion, chopped
2/3 cup chopped mushrooms
2 cups frozen corn
1 package (10-12 oz.) egg noodles
1 can (28 oz.) diced tomatoes, with juices (We only used 14 oz-a small can, and then one can of tomato soup)
2 cups shredded reduced fat cheddar cheese
salt and pepper, to taste
(1 green pepper)

Brown ground beef in 5-quart Dutch oven or large skillet with a lid.
Add onion, mushrooms, (green pepper) and corn.
Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Spread uncooked noodles evenly over top.
Sprinkle cheese evenly over noodles.
Pour the entire can of tomatoes (and tomato soup) over all making sure it covers all the noodles.
Simmer, tightly covered, for 1 hour, then let it stand 3-5 minutes before serving.
