Beef Lombardi Recipe

Beef Lombardi is a freezer-friendly one pot meal everyone will love. Comfort in one meal, right here!

One of the most touching things about having a baby was having people deliver meals after my first baby was born. I was one of the first of my friends to have kids, so it never occurred to me that people would pamper me with food. 
It was the loveliest feeling, having neighbors and friends waltz into my home with casseroles. I didn't even care what it was, I was happy to have a homemade meal ready to go.

With my second baby, the food still arrived, but there weren't quite as many. And by the third kid, I think I was pretty much my dropping hints to my friends that I really wanted someone to cook for me. 
I am sure I sounded desperate, but I wanted to be pampered and loved on. Is that so wrong?

One of the most memorable baby dishes was a Beef Lombardi dish that my old college roommate delivered. It was saucy, beefy, and made with lots of noodles. 
Her recipe had sour cream, black olives and seemed filled to the brim with good tasting ingredients. 
It was filling and made me so, so, happy. I ate it for days (we were only a small family of three back then) and savored every bite.

It's been 14 years since I was introduced to that beef and noodles recipe and I only attempted to make it once until now.  
Since I love one-pot meals (as you can tell by this One Pot Alice Springs Chicken Recipe or this One Pot Unstuffed Peppers recipe). This recipe remains fairly similar to the original recipe except it is not baked in a casserole dish. 
Ground beef is cooked in a large deep skillet and seasoned with garlic, herbs, tomato paste, and diced tomatoes. The addition of beef broth provides enough liquid to cook up the egg noodles. 
Top off this casserole with sour cream, black olives, and chives if you like!
