I took some time off to raise our children, so when I went back to work, I needed quick recipes that were sure to please my family. This saucy is a favorite—Stephanie Thomas, Denham Springs, Louisiana

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound ground beef
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 4 tubes (12 ounces each) refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
  • 1/2 cup chopped green pepper
  • 4 ounces fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 3-1/2 cups spaghetti sauce
  • 2 cups (8 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

Directions

In a large skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until the meat is no longer pink; drain. Add Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Simmer for 1 minute. Quarter the biscuits; place half in a large bowl. Add green pepper, mushrooms and half of the spaghetti sauce and cheese. Gently fold ingredients together. Transfer to a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish. Repeat. Pour remaining sauce over biscuit mixture. Sprinkle with remaining cheese. Bake at 350° for 50 minutes or until center is puffed. Let stand 5-10 minutes before serving. Yield: 8 servings.
Sharp cheddar cheese has a stronger flavor than mild and medium cheddar but doesn't melt as nicely. However, if you prefer the more pronounced flavor of sharp cheddar cheese, you'll find it melts better if finely shredded.
