Reviews for Italian Meat and Potatoes
"I made this casserole tonight and it was indeed one of those casseroles that you just get up out of your chair for seconds mmm! In fact I had to stop the kids from getting thirds.I did change a few things tho. I sliced the potatoes just a little thicker and boiled for 6-8 min., drained well, and layered all ingredients like a lasagna (meat, potatoes, sauce, and cheese, repeat) yes the cheese. I went on ahead and added it. Cover for 35 min. and uncover for 15 min, perfect!!"
