Company Casserole

IMG_0563

This casserole is so easy and good to fix on a busy week night.  It feeds a lot of people so it is good to whip it up quickly for company too.  This is a family favorite that I have made often.  I have also substituted ground turkey in this recipe and it turned out just as good.  The one down thing about this dish is that it is not freezable so have plans for any leftovers.

Add seasonings to the skillet.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Add some oregano to taste.  I added about 1 1/2 teaspoons.  Let the mixture cook until it becomes thick.

Layer 1/3 of the meat mixture on top of the cheese mixture.  Repeat layers two more times ending with the meat mixture on top.

Sprinkle 1 cup of grated mozarrella cheese on top.  Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  This is enough to feed a large gathering of people.  I like to serve this with a green salad and garlic bread.  I will have to post my recipe for fresh ranch dressing one of these days.  It is so good.
