If you’ve ever tried to feed a kid you know it’s no easy task! Kids’ tastes can change from day to day and moment to moment. One day they can’t stand to have a bowl of peas on the dinner table, and the next day they’re eating peas like their little lives depend on it.

Speaking of Tomato soup…
Tomato soup has always been my favorite. Usually I like it best with grilled cheese to dunk in it, but my Mom used to make a Tomato Soup Casserole that my brothers and I loved.
My mom made a lot of casseroles when my brothers and I were kids because casseroles were quick and easy to whip up after a long day of teaching, she could easily stretch them if one of us kids brought a friend home for dinner, and they filled up my brother’s “hollow legs” better than other foods.
Like most of my mom’s recipes, this one gives general guidelines for ingredients but you can adjust amounts to your own taste; you can make it more meaty or more noodle-y, more spicy or not spicy at all. The original recipe gives the option of adding peas instead of corn, but I’ve never had it that way so peas would just taste wrong to me. You do what you want though – I won’t judge!
Campbells Tomato Soup Casserole
- 1 lb ground beef I used ground turkey
- 1 can Campbells Tomato soup
- 1 small can tomato sauce
- 3/4 – 1 package egg noodles I used whole wheat noodles
- 1/2 – 3/4 Cup frozen corn
- Pinch of dried, minced onion
- Salt and pepper to taste
- Chili powder, optional
- In an electric frying pan or large frying pan on the stove, brown the ground beef or turkey. Drain if needed.
- Add the Tomato soup, tomato sauce, dried minced onion, salt pepper, chili powder if used, and enough water to make it “quite soupy.” Bring to a boil.
- Add the noodles and reduce heat to a simmer
- Simmer until the noodles are tender, about 25-30 minutes, adding water if needed. Stir often, scraping the bottom of the pan.
- Add corn and heat thoroughly.
