“This is a recipe that my Grandmother used to keep me and my finicky cousins well fed! It is very kid friendly, and adults like it too!”

I made this for my husband and myself last night, because the snow we got on the weekend put me in a “comfort-food” mood. Like others, I added extra seasonings to suit our tastes. I sauteed fresh mushrooms and the onions with the meat, and added three crushed garlic cloves and a tablespoon of Minor’s beef broth concentrate. I also covered the casserole for the first hour, which kept it nice and moist and helped the potatoes cook properly. I then removed the lid for 15 minutes, which helped set up the dish nicely. Last, I didn’t add any cheese at all, and didn’t miss it. I felt that cheese would only make it greasy and heavier than I would have been able to stand. Granted, it’s not gourmet, but it was created with kids in mind, after all. It was definitely something I’ll make again when I feel like comfort food.

This was so good and much easier than shepherds pie- and with alot less mess. I did add a layer of green beans and added a few more seasonings to the meat as it cooked. I used some garlic, basil and paprika which made it flavourful. It was a big hit with my family and i will certainly make it again.

Hubby says this one is a keeper! I used cream of celery, 1 can mushrooms, small can of green chilies, garlic salt, parsley flakes, and added grated monterey jack to the sauce. I covered it but I think it you would just end up with sauce as last layer, it would dry out a little more. I put cheddar cheese on last 15 minutes, let it rest for 15 minutes out of the oven to set up. Easy and adapts well to what I had on hand!

This was a great base recipe, all of the family really liked it, even my picky 10 yr old son 🙂 I made a couple changes, just personal preferences. I added a good dose of Italian seasoning, Emeril seasoning, and used both fresh garlic and garlic powder. and skipped the corn I put all of the spices in with the meat and onions, placed it all in a bowl when it was done cooking, and used the same pot to boil the noodles. I cooked the noodles until tender, drained the water out, then -re-added the meat mixture back into the pot and cooked it for another few minutes, giving the flavors time to “meld” together. I added in all of the cheese, mixed it around, and cooked for anther few minutes and served it right up! So the entire dish was made on the stove top, I skipped the oven all together.
