This is a recipe I received from a friend many years ago and tweaked to suit my family's tastes.

Made this for lunch today, but my husband and I thought this dish was rather bland. Perhaps substituting fresh minced garlic for the garlic powder would of given this dish more taste; plus adding some dried crushed red pepper flakes would also be good. I would also decrease the amount of ground beef, and just add 1-1/2 lbs., as I thought the 2 lbs. was a bit much. I had to bake this longer in the oven. Baked it exactly for 1 hour. Not sure if I'll make this again. The recipe does need more spice to make this dish more flavorable.
