    Rabbiteer - I have never heard of a "Johnny Marzetti" so I googled it and found several recipes. It looked good - in fact, it looked like a recipe I enjoy called Mrs. Texas Casserole. Hope one of the following recipes is what you need.

    Johnny Marzetti

    1 (8 ounce) package dry egg noodles
    2 pounds ground beef
    1 small onion, chopped
    2 strips celery, chopped
    1 small green bell pepper, chopped
    1 clove garlic, minced
    1 (4.5 ounce) can sliced mushrooms, drained
    1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed tomato soup
    1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
    salt and pepper to taste
    1/2 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
    1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese

    Cook egg noodles in salted water until al dente; drain and set aside.
    In a medium pan, cook the ground beef, onion, celery, green bell pepper, garlic, and mushrooms until beef is brown and vegetables are tender. Drain. Stir in soups and salt and pepper to taste.
    Layer half of the noodles in 1 greased 9 x 13 pan. Top with half of the meat mixture and half of both cheeses. Repeat the layers. Bake at 350º for 30 minutes, or until hot.

    This recipe was created in the 1940s by the owner of Marzetti's Restaurant in downtown Columbus, Ohio and was named after his brother.

    3 Tbs olive oil
    1 large onion, chopped
    ¾ lb mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
    2 lbs lean ground beef
    3 ½ cups tomato sauce
    1 ½ lbs cheddar cheese, shredded
    1 lb elbow macaroni, cooked and drained

    In skillet, saute onion in oil until limp, about 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and fry until juices are released, about 5 minutes. Add beef and cook, stirring, breaking up clumps, until no longer red. Remove from heat and mix in tomato sauce and all but 1 cup of cheese.

    Transfer to greased 11 X 14 baking dish and add macaroni. Toss gently to mix. Scatter remaining cheese on top. Bake, uncovered, in 350° oven until browned and bubbling for 35 to 40 minutes.

    Serving Size - 10-12

    My friend Jackie gave me this recipe years and years ago and shw swore this was the true Johnny Marzetti

    Johnny Mrzetti

    4 oz noodles Cooked

    1 pound hamburg
    i onion chopped
    1/2 green pepper chopped
    8 oz mushrooms
    1 tsp salt
    1/2 tsp pepper
    1 tsp oregano
    1 can tomato soup
    3 tbs tomato paste
    1/3 cup water
    1 tbs worcestershire sauce
    1/2 pound sharp cheddar cheese diced

    Brown beef, onion, pepper and mushrooms in skillet
    Add sesonings, water, paste. soup and Worcestershire and cook for few minutes.

    Mix in cooked noodles (I believe I used medium noodles)

    For some reason her recipe says to cook the hamburg in 2 tbs. shortening, not oil. Beats me....

    Place all in 5 x 9 pan (bread pan)

    Place cheese on top

    Cook 45 minutes at 375

    This is very good and I have not cooked it for a long time. I guess one of these nights I will have to try it again.

    I made the recipe posted by sassygrits and it is just like I remember it from my school cafeteria, from a few (ha ha)years ago. I had forgotten how much I loved this. I went and got the ingredients the day I read this and made it for dinner. Thanks for the memories!

    This is the recipe my mom uses - from the mid-50's. It is very good and easy to make!

    Johnnie Marzetti

    1 pound ground beef cooked
    1 or 2 cans stewed tomatoes (use seasoned for more flavor)
    1 onion diced
    4 cloves garlic
    salt and pepper
    1-2 cups water (depending on number of cans of stewed tomatoes)
    ½ cup or more green peppers
    Pasta

    Cook beef and add onion and garlic and then green peppers

    Add stewed tomatoes and a can of water along with a half box of macaroni or twisted pasta or shells. (I've used penne, elbow and rigatoni).

    Cover and cook until macaroni is done – about 10-15 minutes.
