From Southern Living 1981. A person can only have so many magazines around the house before you get that over-run feeling. I'm cleaning out my stacks and posting the recipes that I've tried and wish to keep here.
The only frozen dinner I have ever cared to eat was the Banquet Salisbury steak with mashed potatoes and corn. I hate the potatoes (instant is just yuck), but do enjoy the rest of the meal so I decided to try to make my own. This is the results of my efforts and I must say, the taste is very close, but even better. This is cheap, easy and freezes very well. If you are going to freeze these then don't freeze them in the gravy. They are much better if the gravy is fresh. Be sure to cut the gravy ingredients if you are not using all the steaks. These can be frozen raw or already cooked.
This hearty comfort dish is super quick and easy for any weeknight. These ingredient amounts aren't set in stone, make yours with more pasta and less sauce or we like our sauce so much that we use more sauce than pasta with lots of cheese. This is easy and you can make it with whatever you have around.
I've only used stock to make this, but will try it with buillion and update. This can be made ahead and reheated slowly. The prep is minus making the stock. This gravy is a little time consuming, but worth it.
