Don't let the prep time stop you from making this delicious casserole. All that is necessary for a wonderful family meal is a salad (apple, maybe) and some crusty rolls. I got this from a local newspaper several years ago.

This is such an awesome dish! If you're making it for the first time, I promise it all comes together in the end. In my experience, at least. Try adding one more ingredient: fresh broccoli. Plus, be very careful if you're using ground spices.
This is one of my favorite dishes! Delightfully sweet and spicy!
Great combination of flavors! Spicier than I thought it would be and that's a good thing. It was quick and easy to put together and cleanup amounted to a casserole dish. You didn't mention what to do with the reserved marinade so I added it to the skillet with the pineapple and made sure it simmered a bit.
