A pretty basic casserole. I can see why it's called what it is called, because it's a tad too basic . . .there is absolutely no seasonings or spices in this thing to jazz it up. I knew just by looking at the recipe that I'd have to put more in it for it to work for us. It looked promising, though, so I thought I'd give it a shot. Recipe doesn't say, but I have to assume it wants you to cook up the meat and veggies first, then put it in the casserole, so that's what I did. I misread it though, and thought the potatoes were to go on top. About halfway through cooking the veggies on the stovetop, I realized my mistake and added half the potatoes. I decided to keep the rest for a topping. So after mixing up the meat and veggies, I put them in the casserole, topped with spaghetti sauce (what I had), topped with potatoes, then topped with garlic sea salt, paper, and more sauce. Then I baked for 75 minutes total, then turned off the oven and took off the cover to brown the potatoes. My other changes: added Italian seasoning, carmelized onions and garlic with the veggies and meat. It turned out pretty basic still, but made for a warm, hearty lunch on a cold winter day. Thanks for the recipe!
