This easy but elegant entree first appeared in "Quick Cooking" magazine. Someone posted this at the Somersize website, which is where I found it. I usually have this over a bed of fried spinach or zucchini ribbons.
This casserole is a simple, easy to prepare, one-dish, meatless meal. Great for brunches. Be sure to drain the spinach really well. For non veggies, you can easily substitute ground breakfast sausage or crumbled bacon if you prefer.
My Mother Inlaw served a Ground Beef Gravy seasoned with salt and pepper on spaghetti. She called it German Spaghetti. I loved it and added my own thing to it. This is a family favorite that I can not make enough of. I have a Gourmet Chef that lived in my home last summer. He wanted to serve this in his Restaurant.
Don't be fooled by the title of this soup. It has wonderful flavor and is so hearty that it can be used as the main course along with some homemade bread. It is delicious. I make it a lot in the winter months when we have a lot of snow--it warms you up. You may use rice in place of the barley, or a little of both.
This is a classic favorite of all of the Luby's Cafeteria customers. From the Luby's 50th Anniversary Recipe Collection Cookbook. The taste of this M&C might be a little bland, but you can always kick it up.
This is a great after-work recipe when things are running late. It takes just 15 minutes from beginning to end if you get your water boiling for the pasta as soon as you walk in the door. This makes enough sauce for about 1 pound of pasta, the variety is up to you! I serve this with crusty bread and a quickly tossed green salad.
This is my origional recipe. It is so good, you'll be lucky if there is any left over for sandwiches! My Grandma always requested this for get togethers. After she passed away, I decided to write a cookbook in her honor. This is in there. You can get more info at www.countryconfections.net
