"My sister passed along the recipe for this convenient casserole," says Mary Killion of Hermiston, Oregon. "I appreciate being able to freeze one pan for a hectic day. The generous portions are bound to feed a hungry family or an extra mouth or two that show up at your table."
When I was living in California, I tasted this rich cheesy pasta dish at a neighborhood Italian restaurant. I got the recipe and made a few changes to it in my own kitchen. I'm happy to share it with you. —Lori Mecca, Grants Pass, Oregon
Apple, raisins and spices give this tasty sausage-rice casserole a taste of autumn. We enjoy it with a green salad on a cold fall day. It would be a nice potluck dish, too—just double the recipe if needed.
I love this recipe because it makes a lot—two hearty casseroles. Every time I fix it, I add something different, such as extra garlic, to give it a little extra flavor. —Debra Butcher, Decatur, Indiana
So rich and creamy, this pasta dish is wonderfully cheesy and delicious! “And for time-saving convenience, I like to assemble it the night before, then bake it the next day!”
Susie Sizemore - Collinsville, Virginia
Hearty and saucy, this potato salad is an old family recipe that wasupdated using cream of potato soup to ease preparation. The sausage, and sauerkraut give it a special zip.—Teresa McGill, Trotwood, Ohio
“This easy meal-in-one dish is a real crowd-pleaser on chilly nights," says Nancy Foust of Stoneboro, Pennsylvania. "Because it bakes in two pans, you could freeze one for later, depending on your needs. It’s creamy, and filling and has a wonderful ham-and-cheese flavor.”
