Italian Vegetable Hot Dish Recipe

This dish became a favorite in our home for two reasons: everyone, including our children, loves the Italian flavor...plus, it's a great way to get kids to eat their vegetables without complaining!—Judy Wulf, Hancocok, Minnesota
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Bake: 1 hour 20 min. YIELD:10-12 servings

Ingredients

  • CRUST:
  • 2-2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup cold butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup ice water
  • FILLING:
  • 1-1/2 pounds ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces each) condensed tomato soup, undiluted
  • 1 package (1-1/2 ounces) spaghetti sauce mix
  • 4 cups sliced cooked carrots
  • 4 cups cut cooked green beans
  • 3 cups (12 ounces) shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese

Directions

  • 1. For crust, combine flour and salt in a bowl. Cut in butter until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add ice water; mix until dough forms a ball. Divide dough in half. Roll out one piece into a 13-in. x 9-in. rectangle; place in a 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Repeat with remaining piece of dough; set aside.
  • 2. For filling, in a large skillet, cook the beef, onion, salt and pepper over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Stir in the soup, spaghetti sauce mix, carrots and green beans. Spoon into crust. Sprinkle with cheese. Cover with remaining dough. Bake at 350° for 80-90 minutes or until bubbly and golden brown. Yield: 10-12 servings.
