Dinner in a Dish

I haven't found anyone yet who can resist this saucy ground beef casserole topped with mashed potatoes. The peas and tomatoes add color and make a helping or two a complete meal. —Betty Sitzman, Wary, Colorado

    This my first time reviewing a recipe which says a lot already. First off I wanna say I'm gluten and dairy intolerant. So I had to do minor tweaks with this recipe but I must say it turned out great!!! First off, the changes I made is: instead of using flour I used king Arthur's measure for measure flour, second- I used a recipe to make gluten free dumplings on top instead of mashed potatoes.. third I only used two cups of frozen peas, four- I used Hunts 28oz petite diced tomatoes (freshly steamed and peeled) five - I used beef bouillon sodium free and added extra tsp of salt and finally instead of using marjoram, I used 1 tsp of oregano. My fiance who is not dairy or gluten intolerant even said this recipe was freaking amazing with the changes I made. He even suggested the next time to mix it the pasta prior to putting in the oven which I think I will try. This will be saved for future dinners again :-) thank you!!!!!

    It was okay. Not a bad tasting dish, but there was too much meat and too much tomatoes for my taste.

    This is delicious. I like to make dirty mashed potatoes for on top (using cooked, not peeled red skin potatoes and preparing them with milk and butter)
