Recipe For Beef Lombardi

A flavorful casserole packed with egg noodles, cream cheese, tomatoes, and ground beef is called beef lombardi.

I understand that Christmas is quickly approaching and everyone is excited to hear about the newest appetiser laden with cheese or fudge, but let’s be honest: we all need to sneak in a little meal now and then. And this dinner is definitely one to remember! You’ll be saying, “What plate of holiday cookies?” and going back for seconds and thirds when you see the mounds of creamy onion cream cheese sandwiched between egg noodles and a hearty tomato sauce.

As an aside, I used Asian rice noodles to make this gluten free. Any gluten-free spaghetti can be used in its place. Egg noodles cannot truly be replaced with gluten-free alternatives, but the flavours are still fantastic. My family, who eats gluten, tried both the gluten-free and gluten-filled versions and didn’t find any issues with the texture difference. As I watched the family devour their dishes of egg pasta casserole, maybe I was just experiencing a case of “the grass is greener.”
