This a crowd-pleaser!! I followed some other reviews and included garlic, doubled the red wine, and put an extra layer of potatoes. I also make a VEGETARIAN version with 2 cans of drained garbanzo beans instead of the ground beef. I just sautee the veggies first, and add the beans after the veggies are cooked. I made the two versions for a party the other night, and the vegetarian one was VERY popular. Next time I will include a can of garbanzos into the meat version, too. Even the little kids at the party loved the casserole. We served it with rice and sour cream. One other minor change -- I used plain yogurt instead of half-and-half. But I think that could be left out if you wanted a lactose-free dish. If you make the vegetarian version, then you can have a lactose-free, gluten-free, and meat-free dinner that's super tasty!! Trust me, IF you have any leftovers, you won't have to throw them out.
