Philly Cheese Steak Casserole

Philly Cheese Steak Casserole ~ This Philly Cheese Steak Casserole can easily be doubled or tripled and if you are pressed for time, you can have the casserole on the table in LESS than 30 minutes !

We love Philly Cheese Steak Sandwiches, but it is a lot of sandwiches to make when you have a crowd to feed.

This Philly Cheese Steak Casserole is perfect for larger families, or when you have lots of mouths to feed in a hurry - yes, I say..in a hurry.. as I never really know who will be home for dinner and whether any extras are joining us.

I am sharing the basic recipe for 4 servings {adult size}, but mostly I double and even triple the recipe, depending on who is home for dinner.

This is a quick and easy last minute recipe and I usually have all the ingredients. The Steak also does not have to be doubled or tripled as I use more than is really necessary, therefore, double everything else, but leave the Steak at 500g - just over a pound {if you only have that much on hand}. You might want to add a little more when tripling the recipe though.

When I am really pressed for time, I do not even bake the casserole as all the ingredients are already cooked before going into the oven. Baking the Philly Cheese Steak Casserole only firms up the dish a bit and heat through.

Without baking you can have a wonderful, and very tasty meal on the table in less than 30 minutes. Start the Pepper/Steak mixture at the same time as your pasta starts to boil, heat the Cheese Sauce {if not making your own at the time} and everything will be hot when you mix it all up.

Serve immediately after mixing if you plan on not baking the casserole. The dish will be saucier, as the sauce thickens whilst baking, but that is no biggie - it all boils down to your preferences and time you have available.

4 Servings

INGREDIENTS:

500g {raw weight} Macaroni, cooked
1 TB Oil
2 Red Bell Peppers, sliced
1 Onion, sliced
500g Beef Steak, cut into strips
Salt and Black Pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - spray a 20 x 30cm oven dish with cooking oil.
2.) Heat the Oil in a large pan - saute the Peppers and the Onion until just soft - add the Steak and stir-fry until the meat is done - season to taste with the Salt and Pepper.
3.) Combine the cooked Macaroni, Steak mixture and the Cheese Sauce in a large mixing bowl - transfer to the prepared oven dish, cover with aluminum foil and bake 25 - 30 minutes or until heated through.

Serve with a crunchy salad on the side.
