You'll need just seven basic ingredients to make this effortless upside-down pizza casserole. Since I cook for two, I often divide it into two smaller casserole dishes - one for dinner and one to freeze. I take the frozen portion out of the freezer the night before to thaw in the fridge before baking as directed.

This recipe from Emma Hageman of Waucoma, Iowa provides all the flavor of traditional pizza in a convenient casserole. "It's chock-full of ground beef, pepperoni and veggies, so it's perfect for a potluck or to feed the men in the fields," she notes.
Spaghetti squash, like zucchini, can take over a garden. This is an excellent way to put that abundance to good use. I got the original recipe at a cooking class, and I've made it many times since. It's unique and tasty.

This nicely spiced entree uses several of my family's favorite ingredients, including macaroni, kidney beans, tomatoes and cheese. Just add a green salad for a complete meal. —Marlene Wilson of Rolla, North Dakota
We live in southeastern Arizona, in a part of the state known as Cobre Valley. "Cobre" is Spanish for copper, which is mined here. Variations of this recipe have been enjoyed in this area for many years. —Carolyn Deming, Miami, Arizona
