      This is the EXACT recipe I remember my mom making in the late '60's and early '70's! My mom's Betty Crocker cookbook was lost in a divorce settlement and I am not on good terms with my father, SO thank you so much for posting this! I vividly remember the sight, smell, and process that my mom used to make! :)

      I have been making this for years! When I first made it, I added a lb. of browned ground beef; Recently, for a healthier version, I use turkey bacon, brown rice and add a lb. of browned ground turkey - it's still delicious!

      I've made this recipe many times over the years and love it. I am a snow bird and didn't have the recipe with me in Arizona, but was happy to find it on your website. The only difference is that I add a topping of either cheddar or jack cheese before baking. Otherwise it's the same. Sometimes I substitue a can of Rotelle (Original) instead of the diced tomatoes.
