Chili Beef & Noodle Skillet Dinner

Skillet dinners have been a favorite of mine ever since my children were little.  There were many times when I needed to be able to put together a quick dinner so that I could take the children outside for play or for a walk before their dad came home.  This recipe goes together fairly quickly and can be put into a crock-pot to keep warm if dinner is going to be a little late.   Sorry, but no pictures this time!

1 pkg. egg noodles (8 oz)

1-1/2 to 2 pounds ground beef  or ground turkey

1 medium onion, chopped

1/4 c. chopped celery

2 garlic cloves, minced (I used 2 tsp. prepared minced garlic)

1 can crushed tomatoes (28 oz)

1 tbsp. chili powder

1/2 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. black pepper

1 c. shredded cheddar cheese

Cook noodles according to package directions.  Meanwhile, cook the beef, onion, celery and garlic over medium heat until meat is done and veggies are tender. Drain fat off.  Add tomatoes, chili powder, salt and pepper. Stir and cook for about 2 minutes.  Drain noodles and stir into beef mixture.*  Sprinkle with shredded cheese and cover to allow cheese to melt.  Serve with tossed salad, French bread, or cornbread.

*If you choose, place mixture into crock-pot before adding cheese.
