This was sooooo good. I added a small amount of chopped onion and garlic to brown with the ground beef. Easy is not the word for this. I had this put together and in the oven in no time. Tasted delicious. My family gave it the big thumbs up. Thanks.

This was absolutely delicious. The only change/addition I made was sauteeing a chopped medium onion and a crushed garlic clove in a little oil before adding the meat. I am confident it will freeze wonderfully. Thanks for sharing, NurseDi!
