Gorilla Casserole
This recipe serves 20!! I usually halve this recipe and put it in 2-8 x 8" pans. I freeze one, and prepare the 2nd for dinner.

2 & 1/2 lb hamburger
2 large onions, chopped
3 stalks celery & leaves, chopped
3 large carrots, grated
2 (3oz) cans Italian-style diced tomatoes
2 tsp salt
1 & 1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder (I used 1/2 tsp minced garlic for my
half recipe)
24 oz macaroni (I used 10 oz wide egg noodles for my half
recipe)
2 pkgs frozen spinach, thawed not drained

(I also added 1 30 oz jar spaghetti sauce, as it seemed to need it)

Brown ground beef in dutch oven; drain. Return to pan; add onion, celery, and carrots. Cook 5 minutes. Stir in tomatoes, salt, oregano, pepper, garlic, and spaghetti sauce. Bring to a boil, then simmer covered 1 hour. Cook noodles according to directions and set aside. After sauce is done, stir in pasta and spinach. Mix thoroughly. Put in (2) 9 x 13" pans, and sprinkle with enough parmesan to cover. Cover, label, and
freeze.

To serve, thaw completely and bake at 350F for 30 minutes.
