Sloppy Joe Veggie Casserole
Total TimePrep: 25 min. Bake: 30 min.
A note to Vondalin: many of us value the input of other cooks sharing their changes, deletions or additions! I hang on every word and, then, offer my take on the recipe. It is highly unlikely that every cook's family will accept the recipe as written due to varying tastes. Here is what I did with the recipe: I added a few shakes of Worcestershire, dash of vinegar and some hot sauce. We loved it!
Huge hit with the family! We love our sloppy joe's but this was a great new take on it. Love the addition of the mixed veggies too!
AWESOME!!! Will be adding this to my casserole collection. Only thing I did different was use green onions. Everyone in the family loved it and went back for seconds.
Loved it! My 7 year old even asked for SECONDS!!! And that never happens!
Made this the other night and we all liked it. Worth making it again. I think I might try adding in some frozen tomatoes to this also.
Thanks Sue! This dish was VERY delicious! I took the liberty to add in a clove of finely minced garlic in Step #2. Instead of using (ALL) 2% cottage cheese.... I used a 50/50 combo of 2% cottage cheese, and Low Fat Ricotta. In Step #4, I used an "Italian Five Cheese Blend", because that's what I had in my fridge at the time. This dish was delicious, and we enjoyed it very much. I'll definitely make it again.
All in all this was very good!! Easy to make!! I read all the reviews and any of the changes you want to make to this recipe should work just fine. I used about 1/2 lb more meat. I would use ricotta cheese. Instead of baking for the last 10 minutes, I broiled this dish for 5 minutes which gave a nice melted/crunchy crust on top. My family loved it!!
Excellent recipe! Everyone in my family enjoyed it. I used half ricotta and half cottage cheese. I liked the vegetables and the taste of the sauce. I will definitely make this again.
Was wondering if you have a suggestion for using something other than the cottage cheese. Ricotta maybe? I'm sorry, but we just aren't that fond of the texture of cottage cheese. Your recipe sounds very good, that's why I'm interested in trying it with just that one adjustment. I'm rating this like the others have, because it won't allow me to post without a rating.
Frustrating...the reviews are worthless if you haven't tried it yet or change every other ingredient in the original. This recipe sounded interesting as it was submitted. We enjoyed it very much. It freezes well too!My suggestion for next time would be to use fresh cooked green beans, frozen peas and carrots and frozen corn instead of the packaged mixed veggies because I don't care for frozen green beans --but other than that I liked the recipe and any other changes I might make would not then be your recipe to review! People are rating their own recipe! Thanks for sharing yours Sue!
