Here's a delicious dish that is very easy to make— and fast, too. The best thing, though, is that you mix everything in one bowl!

"Super easy recipe! A snap to adjust taste preferences by changing spices and/or type of tomatoes. Did add more chili powder & garlic for my taste and used petite diced tomatoes with jalapenos. Next will try Italian-spiced tomatoes and dry Italian seasoning instead of chili powder. May even use bulk Italian sausage instead of ground beef. BTW you don't brown the meat. The juices and fat flavor the casserole and add moistness. Enjoy!"

"Cindy, I'm going to say no. I haven't made this but guessing that it may dry the dish out if the ground beef is cooked. My mom use to brown her beef before making her cabbage rolls and they were always dry. I never cook mine but roll it up with rice and tomatoes and the rolls are never dry. This dish looks about the same. "
