I'm a fan of the Pioneer Woman's noodle bake (which also has ground beef and tomatoes...though I sub ground turkey in it!) and switched it up a bit to make it into a SUPER easy side dish. It's so versatile that you can serve it with nearly anything. Just last night I served it with some chicken tequila lime sausage (have you seen it? It's from Guy Fieri's line - SO good!) I picked up for a quick dinner! I usually have all these ingredients on hand anyway, which is great!
