Savory Beef Casserole
Serves 6

1 pound ground beef
1 cup chopped onion
1 (14.5-ounce) can chopped tomatoes
1 (10-ounce) package frozen whole kernel corn
3 potatoes -- peeled, chopped
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 1/4 cups chopped carrots
1 cup chopped celery
1 (10 3/4-ounce) can condensed tomato soup
1 cup water
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 refrigerated pie pastry

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cook beef and onion in a large deep skillet over medium heat until beef is browned and crumbly, about 10 minutes; drain.

Add undrained tomatoes, corn, potatoes, mushrooms, carrots, and celery to skillet. Stir in tomato soup, water, salt, pepper, and garlic powder; cover.

Cook mixture, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 20 minutes. Spoon into a large baking pan. Roll pastry into a rectangle on a lightly floured surface; cut into 1-inch wide strips

Arrange pastry strips in a lattice pattern over beef mixture. Bake casserole until pastry is browned and filling is bubbly, about 20 minutes.

Variation: For a Texan flair, add 3 tablespoons chopped green chiles to the beef mixture in step 2.
