Martha's company casserole is a classic comfort food delight for a reason

Print this recipe
Classics are classics for a reason, and you can't get more traditional than Martha's Company Casserole. The recipe below — a combination of beef, noodles and cheese — comes from a 1958 Good Housekeeping cookbook. Once you've prepared it, you'll surely see what's given it so much staying power.
While this version of the recipe remains fairly true to the original, it does boast one important change. The 1958 recipe calls for diced green bell pepper, but here the roasted red peppers add a bit more zip and flavor. Consider adding some crushed red pepper flakes to the mixture too, if you like a hint of spice.
