We all enjoyed this Casserole tonight! Not to spicy! Loved the crescent rolls on top with the butter and cheese. Browned nicely and the taste of the browned cheesy crust was so delicious! Thanks so much ; )
I made quite a few changes to this recipe to accommodate what I had and our tastes. I used 1 lb ground beef, 1 chopped breakfast sausage link, 1/4 cup chopped steak, 1/4 red onion, 1/2 cup frozen italian vegetables, 1 envelope (5.8oz) sun dried tomato sauce. For the seasoning, I added what I liked for italian seasoning: 1 tsp parsley, 1 tsp garlic salt, 1 tsp pizza seasoning, 1 tsp steak seasoning. I added a handful of sour cream & cheddar potato chips, crushed. I used only 1/4 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup milk. I poured this into a casserole dish, topped with crumbled cheddar and shredded cheddar jack blend. Then topped with pieces of pillsbury pizza crust, parmesan and pizza seasoning.
Made this for dinner tonight and both kids loved it. It had a good flavor and the crescent rolls on top were nice and crunchy like I like them. I used ground turkey instead of the beef (as always), added some pureed butternut squash to the meat mixture just to get the extra veggies in, and cut the recipe in half since it was just me and the kids tonight. Other than that I didn't change a thing. Served with some crisp green beans. I will make this again for sure.
