Busy Day Hamburger Dish

This was my grandmother's recipe. I think she called it "Busy Day" because this is a recipe that she would make the night before and then just put it in the oven on one of her busy days.

Busy Day Hamburger Dish
2 lbs. ground beef
1 lb. curly noodles
2 cans tomato soup
2 cans Italian diced tomatoes
3-4 cups grated cheese (Mozzarella and Cheddar)
Salt and Pepper to taste
1 tsp. Oregano
1 tsp. Parsley flakes
1/2 tsp. Italian seasonings

*Boil noodles. Drain.
*Brown hamburger. Drain. Add tomato soup, Italian tomatoes, Oregano, Parsley, and Italian seasonings.
*Grease 9x13 pan. Put a layer of noodles, a layer of meat mixture, salt and pepper, and then a layer of cheese. Repeat.
*Bake at 350. If it's been in the fridge it will take about 45 minutes. If it hasn't been in the fridge it won't take very long- just long enough for the cheese to melt and heat through.

**Next time I make this, I will put it in two smaller pans and freeze one for another night. I served this with salad and toast and we didn't even eat 1/4 of it!
