Excellent for a buffet supper. Even better if you make the sauce the day before and let it season. Use other meats in place of pork if more convenient - ground beef or pork sausage. If you use sausage, you will not need extra fat.
1/4 cup butter or other cooking fat
1 1/2 pounds lean pork, ground
8 large onions, sliced
3 cans concentrated tomato soup or 1 can tomato paste and 2 cups water
1 pound mushrooms, sliced
1 bunch celery, diced
2 green bell peppers, cut fine
Juice of 1/2 lemon
Salt and pepper
1 pound sharp cheese, cut small
1 large package broad noodles
Cook butter, pork and onions together until well browned. Add tomato paste, mushrooms, celery, peppers, lemon juice, salt, pepper and cheese. Simmer 15 minutes to make a rich sauce.
Meanwhile, in a deep kettle of boiling, salted water (1 teaspoon to each quart), cook noodles until just tender. Drain and mix with the sauce. Cover closely and cook slowly 1 hour on top of stove or in a 350 degree F oven.
Serves 12 to 16.
