CHILI LASAGNA

This is an old recipe I got from a Home-Economics teacher many years ago.

1 pkg lasagna noodles
1 lb ground beef
1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 can diced tomatoes with the juice
1/4 cup chili powder
3 8-oz cans tomato sauce
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp blackpepper
1 pkg (8-oz) cheese slices, cut into strips

Cool lasagna noodles according to the package directions and drain well.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Saute beef, bell pepper, and onion in a skillet for 10 minutes or until the beef is browned and the veggies are crisp tender. Drain. Return mixture to the pan and add the tomatoes, tomato sauce, chili powder, salt, and pepper. Stir and set aside. In a 13 x 9-inch baking pan, arrange a layer of lasagna noodles. Put a layer of the meat mixture then a layer of cheese over the noodles. Repeat the layers, ending with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes or until heated through and bubbly.
