Venison gives a pleasant change-of-pace flavor to this quick-to-fix pasta casserole. "Since my husband is an avid hunter, I'm always trying to find new ways to prepare ground venison," writes Donna Thomas from Bark River, Michigan. "Even those who usually don't care for the meat will like this hearty on-dish meal."
