This recipe has a very good flavor. I wasn't sure about how long to cook the dish and because I wanted to make sure the potatoes were completely done, I boiled the peeled and sliced potatoes about 10-15 minutes in salted water and then mixed them with the meat/sauce mixture in the casserole dish and baked (covered) at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. After we served it and tasted it, we sprinkled a little grated co-Jack cheese for a little more oomph. We really enjoyed the celery in the dish. Thanks for posting the receipe, MMLWJR--what a nice tribute to your mom. I'm sure we'll be making this one again.
This recipe is missing some key details, such as oven temperature & how long to bake. Marla
