Deep-Dish Beef Bake Recipe

When tomatoes and green pepper are plentiful in my garden, I slice the tomatoes and chop the peppers, then freeze them on baking sheets. When they're frozen, I put them in heavy-duty bags and store for later use in this casserole.—Karen Owen, Rising Sun, Indiana

"I have made this a couple of times, using what I had. Made with pie crust instead of biscuit; liked that better. Also misread recipe and thought it said cup cheese so substituted ricotta, actually turned out quite tasty. My husband thinks salsa would spice it up but does like original recipe too"
