Ground Beef Casserole

A prairie classic – popular for potluck suppers. Great for family suppers too, especially on a cold winter night. Leftovers can be frozen. Chow Mein noodles are fried and crispy – you can find the cans in the Chinese food section of the supermarket. They get soft when baked in the casserole.
