Beef Casserole

Alright folks, there is no fancy story to go with this recipe. Just a really great dish that will fill you up.


1 lb ground beef
1 green bell pepper, halved and chopped
6 green onions, chopped
2 carrots, peeled and chopped
1 can of Pillsbury crescent rolls
5 fresh sage leaves, chopped
2 sprigs of fresh rosemary, chopped
2 tsp pepper
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp crushed red pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1 can diced tomatoes
½ cup ketchup
1 bag shredded cheese

1.       Heat oven to 375 degrees
2.       Line bottom of medium glass baking dish with crescent roll dough
3.       Bake dough for 11 minutes
4.       In medium to large fry pan add olive oil, ground beef, salt, pepper and garlic. Cook till beef is brown
5.       Remove dough from oven and reduce heat to 350 degrees
6.       Next add carrots, bell pepper, and green onions. Cook till carrots are slightly tender
7.       Add tomatoes, crushed pepper and ketchup
8.       Now pour meat mixture over dough
9.       Sprinkle top with sage, rosemary, and cheese
10.   Cover with foil and bake for 25-30 minutes
11.   Let cool for 10 minutes and serve

This is a great dish! Perfectly spicy and satisfying. My suggestion, serve with a dollop of sour cream.
