This recipe is known in the freezer world as the ''Crowd Pleaser Casserole" or "Feed the Crowd Casserole" but as you know us - we've changed the name and kicked it up a notch!
The name was changed in honor of Janet's grandmother who introduced her to freezer cooking at a young age. Grandma always had this casserole ready to go for when someone came over. After Janet was married, she asked her Grandma about it and learned the art of the freezer!
Here is her scrapbook page capturing this memory:

On to the recipe:
1 1/2 lb ground beef
1 c chopped onions
12 oz frozen corn
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 can cream of celery soup
2 c macaroni noodles
1 c cheddar cheese
Cook noodles only 3 minutes, drain and immediately run under cold water to stop the cooking process. Noodles will freeze well and not turn to mush if done this way. Brown beef with onions set aside. In 9x13 aluminum freezer pan, mix ingredients except cheese. Season casserole with parsley, celery salt, season all and pepper to taste. Sprinkle cheese on top. Cover with foil and freeze!
To cook: Thaw and cook covered until bubbly at 350.
