  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2-1/2 cups hot mashed potatoes (prepared with milk and butter)

  • 1. In a skillet, cook beef and onion over medium heat until meat is no longer pink; drain. Add beans, tomato sauce, salt and pepper; mix well. Transfer to a greased shallow 2-qt. baking dish.

"Boy, this is an old recipe -- from Better Homes and Gardens in the 1950s. I've served it since then. It's a good way to get veggies down reluctant kids."
