Have some cheese or milk that is about to go bad? This quick casserole blueprint uses up all the leftovers in the fridge and makes a delicious, quick meal.
For a casserole, you need some kind of milk product (soy, skim, cottage cheese, even plain yoghurt). In addition, break out any frozen veggies that have been hiding in the back of the freezer for months, or the spinach in the crisper that won't last another week. You also need a starch, so pour on some noodles or potatoes. Some people add tuna, hamburger or another meat, but that's optional in my opinion.
Set oven to 350 degrees.
Pour noodles to cover the bottom of the greased pan you are using. I do not cook my noodles in advance, although you can-- which reduces cooking time, but adds another pan to clean.
Pour milk, cottage cheese, yoghurt, whatever to cover the noodles. You really can use whatever you like here, and feel free to combine things. Even veggie stock or the time honored cream of mushroom soup will work. Stay away from flavored milk products. This is not the place for the vanilla flavored soy milk. (I've tried it, it won't work).
Add to it whatever sounds tasty. Have a garlic clove or some onion lying around? Chop it up and throw it in. I open my fridge and pull out any vegetables that I have leftover from the week.
I dot the top of the casserole with a few knobs of butter and sprinkle it with cheese. Throw it in the oven until it's nice and brown. The noodles will cook, I promise. Ten minutes before you take it out, you can sprinkle it with more cheese if you like. It generally takes about 30-40 minutes, if you're using a medium sized pan and did not cook the noodles beforehand.
