Perfect. I was nervous, spaghetti sauce and mashed potatoes sounded strange but it was great! My husband was so happy and the kids loved the crust! The only change I did was only 1 lbs of hamburger instead of 2 and added onion before browning the hamburger. We will make again such an easy/cheap staple next time we will half the recipe and put in an 8x8 until our kids are out of the preschool age and have a bigger apatite. It was nice that I already had left over spaghetti sauce from making spaghetti 5 days earlier.

Comfort food at it's best! I halved the recipe and substituted ground turkey for hamburger. I thought I had crescent rolls, but didn't so I substituted a boxed corn-bread mix for the crust. All the flavors just blended together perfectly, even youngest who doesn't like "casseroles" had two helpings. Thank you for sharing! Will be making again.
What a tummy-warming comfort food recipe for a chilly early fall day in Western NY, USA. I made a few adjustments to suit my preferences: I used shredded cheddar cheese instead of sliced cheese, added frozen peas, added onions when browning the beef and added 1/2 cup more of spaghetti sauce for more moisture. I made garlic smashed potatoes for the topping, and the whole lot turned out delicious. Thanks for a tasty, hearty recipe! (Made for AUS/NZ Recipe Swap #32)
