Ground Beef and Bell Peppers w/Egg Noodles

Everyday Midwestern home cooking means simple hearty dishes.  Beef is a major part of it, as well as noodles…

I don’t know what it is about egg noodles, but I think they’re great.  They’re flavorful ~ my favorite pasta.

This is a simple supper that’s substantial and full of good taste ~ perfect comfort food for the cold weather here now ~ which is all of 0 degrees now!

The good thing is that it can all be made on the stovetop, with it coming together quickly.  

You can probably have dinner on the table in 25 minutes, or maybe even before you can get the table set.

  1. This sounds like one of those "go-to" recipes! Thanks for sharing, Pam! xo

  2. Dear Pam,
    Happy New Year to you and yours.
    I love egg noodles too. I think they remind me of childhood covered in butter and cheese!
    This is a very nice and healthy meal. Perfect for the cold weather.
    It is cold here too and snowing as I write; very damp wet snow!!

  5. Pam, I hope that all is well...and try to stay warm! It's headed for 8 degrees overnight here...and Chicagoland is already in the deep freeze. As for the Beef & is true comfort food but I'd have to leave those bell peppers out of the recipe. Take Care, Big Daddy Dave

  7. I like egg noodles too.....I would eat them more often if the hubby liked noodles as much as I do. Geez.....I can't imagine temps of 0 degrees. I'm sure that good meals like this one are what helps to keep the body warm!! I'm sure hoping you all don't have a Winter like the one last year... Keep warm my friend...

  8. What a great change from stuffed peppers, Pam! We usually have stuffed peppers with noodles so this dish just changes things up a bit. Just perfect for chilly days and a new year!

Good bread is the most fundamentally satisfying of all foods; good bread with fresh butter, the greatest of feasts!

We went for Sunday rides in the Model-T when my grandmother didn't visit. My parents liked the orange groves, miles and miles of orange trees always either in blossom or full of oranges. My parents had a picnic basket and a metal chest. In the metal chest were frozen cans of fruit on dry ice, and in the picnic basket were weenie and liverwurst and salami sandwiches, potato chips, bananas and soda-pop. The soda-pop was shifted continually back and forth between the metal box and the picnic basket. It froze quickly, and then had to be thawed.
