1 medium onion, chopped
3 stalks celery, chopped
1 can mushrooms
1 can black olives
1 (16 oz) pkg medium noodles
8 ounces cheddar or American cheese, cubed or shredded
1 large can diced tomatoes
1 c water
Brown hamburger, onions, and celery. Combine the other ingredients except cheese. Bring to boil. Simmer until noodles are tender and liquid is absorbed.
NOTES: The name of this recipe may be a little optimistic, but it did get thumbs up from both Dad and Nick even with the tomato chunks. I made a half batch and it was more than enough for the three of us. I did have to add a little extra water.
