Beef Lombardi

While it may sound like a fancy dish, Beef Lombardi is simply a mixture of ground beef and chopped tomatoes that’s spooned over a mixture of creamy noodles, topped with cheese, and baked.  It’s a great make-ahead dish because you can assemble the casserole and freeze it for up to one month.
