For a seniors potluck at church, I wanted to create a recipe that would incorporate a meat dish and side dish in one. This casserole proved to be a crowd pleaser, and I was asked by many to share my recipe. —Jo Ann Fritzler, Belen, New Mexico

"Made this last night, it was great. The family loved it. It was simple and easy. I did however use frozen meatballs to make it even easier. I was pressed for time. It was still great. Thanks for sharing!"

"I took a pkg. of ground beef out of the freezer this AM and immediately came to the computer to go online with TOH for "HELP". I don't think I could pay my grand kids to eat another bite of spaghetti and a meatloaf just didn't provide the bells and whistles I was looking for. TOH and their miracle workers who provide us with great recipes have never failed me. This is on tonights menu and is safely saved in my recipe box. Thanks TOH and especially JoAnn for sharing!"

"IL take a lot of potluck items to church. This sounds great but I would brown the meatballs in my steamer in the microwave to make them almost fat free. I might also make meatballs from ground turkey to cut down on fat."
