    Pagan's Note:

    NOTE: This recipe has been updated! This was Elswet's Papaw's "Saturday Afternoon" recipe. He prepared it himself, often. He said it was an old Navy recipe he remembered from WWII, and it was one of his favorite dishes. It has a slight pizza taste, which makes it a favorite among kids, is very easy to assemble, and gives you hands free cooking. NOTE: This recipe has been adjusted, slightly. ;)

      This is a great recipe for when you're short on $$ and ingredients. H2B made a half recipe for just us in a 9x9 baking dish with very good results (and leftovers!) He would like to add something spicy next time and I like everything with more garlic! We came to the conclusion that it tastes like the inside of a cabbage roll! Thanx for the recipe, we will be making this again!

      We loved this - I can't eat cheese and it was just delicious without it - so easy and so yummy. My favorite part is that I don't have to cook the ground beef first!!! Thanks for posting - I'm making it again this week!
