My son in law who is the most accommodating, generous and other wonderful qualities that any mother would want in a SIL, rarely asks anything for himself.
This morning I urged him to name what HE would like for dinner. He finally said "california casserole" well DD reacted as wives often do, jumping down his throat and saying that was her aunt's recipe, not mine. Anyway I found a recipe on line. . . seems pretty simple
2 pounds ground beef
1 medium green pepper, chopped
3/4 cup chopped onion
1 can (14-3/4 ounces) cream-style corn
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
1 can (10 ounces) tomatoes with green chilies, undrained
1 can (8 ounces) tomato sauce
1 jar (4-1/2 ounces) whole mushrooms, drained
1 jar (4 ounces) chopped pimientos, drained
1 can (2-1/4 ounces) sliced ripe olives, drained
1-1/2 teaspoons celery salt
1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 ounces wide egg noodles, cooked and drained
2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
In a large skillet, cook the beef, green pepper and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink and vegetables are tender; drain. Stir in the next 11 ingredients. Add noodles.
Pour into a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° for 50 minutes. Sprinkle with cheese; bake 10 minutes longer or until the cheese is melted. Yield: 12-16 servings.
Do any of you make this and if so does this version sound right?
Never had it, but the recipe sounds like a nice mix of veggies with beef and some spiciness for kick. What will you have for accompaniments?
Maybe you can get the recipe from your daughters aunt and compare recipes! This one sounds good though, and easy!
I've lived here for over 50 years and I've never eaten nor heard of Calif. Cass. I think the recipe sounds good though. Please let us know how it turns out!
This would be my sister LOL! She just left for Europe. Think we have decided to eat out tonight as everyone is tired from day's activities (kayaking, swimming, yard saling etc.) When I do make it I will give a critique of its success (or failure!)
Sounds good, but I would probably make several modifications when I make it, I guess it will be a Virgina/South Carolina Casserole then.
Never heard of that casserole but just too many ingredients that I don't care for in a dish. Hope you are having a nice dinner out tonight!

I first heard of this recipe shortly after I first got internet service in 2000. Someone gave me a recipe CD of 1 million (seriously!) "home cook" recipes that included it, but it definitely had another name that I don't recall. I was a member then of the old BHG forums, and there was a discussion of this ole-timey casserole there.
I've never made it. Probably would taste it, if someone else made it, but would never prepare it otherwise. I might rename it "Kitchen Sink Casserole".
I did some checking, and noticed the recipe was submitted at the Taste of Home website. Here's the link to that recipe, and with the reviews that were posted so far...

My grandmother has made this recipe for several years and we love it! It's always a hit with company too!

2) I made just a minor change by using shredded mozzerella rather than the cheddar. I also used fresh mushrooms and cooked them with the hamburger green pepper, onion mixture.My family thought it a hit and would like it again.

My family and I didn't care for this casserole. We ate it, but I won't make it again.
Sounds good to me! I printed off the recipe, and I'm going to try it soon!
