Company casserole. Hot dish (as Stover would call it). Pasta bake. Mom’s spaghetti pie. You name it – every family has their version of this recipe. Using the same basic ingredients in each. Except we jazz it up a bit. You know know I roll.

This recipe was adapted from on on Pioneer Woman’s classics. With my own little spin on it.

Whenever there is a meal train, someone has a baby, or you just feel like taking a homie something delish. This is the recipe! Promise. It’s a crowd pleaser. It’s one of those just good for the soul meals. Ya know what I mean?

If you’re in a dinner rut, add this to your rotation. It’s quick + easy to prepare. You can even pop it in the freezer and bake it another time. Great for leftovers. Or for serving a crowd.

Just a good ol fashion dinner, like Mom used to make at home.
