I have been making this for years now. It is fantastic! I like to sub half of the ground beef with Italian sausage.

This recipe is awesome, especially the day after when all the flavors soak in. I changed all the cheese to reduced fat, and used extra lean ground beef to make it healthier. It can be frozen for a few weeks, thaw it the day before use and it still taste yummy. This will please all ages.
