Introduction: Philly CheeseSteak Casserole

Picture of Philly CheeseSteak Casserole

My kitchen looks like a tornado went through it this weekend, deep cleaning the cabinets and rotating the canned hurricane supplies, the counter and stove piled with dishes, pans and pots needing washing but we still needed to eat ! The microwave and convection toaster oven were clear so that's how I cooked

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients

Not only is this an easy meal to throw together its rather inexpensive

 steakums, my grocery usually has these buy one get one free for around $5.us
 
 packaged macNcheese, these pasta and sides were recently 5 for $5.us

 onion, green pepper
 
 steak sauce
 
 worchestershire sauce
 
 extra cheese, velveeta in this case

 milk and butter or margerine

Step 2: Steaks

I usually use a frying pan to cook the steakums but I use the same ingredients. It's not the best cheesesteak in the world but it suffices.

 In a microwave safe bowl , break up 4 or 5 steakums, add in your green peppers, onions, a splash of steak sauce and worchestershire sauce, microwave on high for 1 minute and stir the microwave on high for 4 minutes or until all the pink is gone, strain off any water or grease

Step 3: Pasta

the pasta and sides comes with instructions for microwaving, I pretty much followed the directions but added another half cup of water towards the end of "cooking"

Step 4: Xtra Cheese

this step is optional, I just happen to like cheese, you can use whatever you have available, cheddar, american, jack, I'm using about an inch thick chunk of velveeta cut into chunks

Step 5: Combine It All

when the pasta is finished cooking in the microwave, add in the cooked meat and stir together well. The food is ready to eat at this point but I went an extra step and added in the extra cheese before pouring into a small casserole dish and baking  in a 350f oven for 15 minutes

Step 6: Chow Time

With the ingredients used this will feed 2 hungry adults, a side salad would go nice as would a nice adult grape beverage.

options:
 doubling or even tripling the ingredients would still make this an inexpensive dinner for a family
 use a conventional cooking source (stove top) but that adds a lot of extra heat to a room in the summer
 use mozzarella cheese and add tomato sauce to make a pizza steak casserole

 and if you're one of those who enjoy fungus on your food before it's aged 2 weeks in the frig by all means go ahead and add mushrooms
