Directions See How It's Made
- In a large skillet, cook beef, garlic and onion over medium heat, breaking up the meat with a spoon.
- After about 10 minutes- or when the meat is cooked through- drain off any fat.
- Stir in the tomato sauce, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.
- In a bowl, toss potatoes with flour and oil.
- Spread half the potato slices in the bottom of a shallow 8-cup (2L) baking dish.
- Spoon half the meat sauce evenly over the potatoes and top with half the cheese.
- REPEAT with remaining potato, meat sauce and cheese.
- Cover and bake at 350*F (180*C) oven for 45 minutes- or until the potatoes are tender.
- Uncover and bake for a further 5 minutes, or until cheese is bubbly and golden brown.
- TIP: If covering dish with foil, spray foil with non-stick vegetable spray to prevent cheese from sticking to it.
