I was hunting for something else to make with the hamburger, potatoes and onions. I came across this recipe and decided to fix it. At the table I added cottage cheese. It was like...mmmm...lasagna, ummm,uh, ok, potatoe lasagna...lasagna cassarole...CASSAROLLI!!! I raise the flag to lay claim to this new word for this dish. Tonight, I make-a cassarolli! (obviously said with an accent--yes, italian)
"Tomato Concentrate" -I had it, it sounded close enough to tomato soup
I forgot I wanted to add Celery
Oh, and the beans...the recipe said kidney, but I figured Garbanzo, Split-Pea, Black-Eyed Peas, Pintos and Lentils would work.
Yeah, Cook Meat...add spices, throw in crockpot and forget it til the Potatoes are done(roughly 3hrs on High). Real Difficult. Oh, the Beans had already been soaked and cooked.
The recipe said to cook meat then put all in the oven to cook for 2 hours (1hr covered, 2nd uncovered) I didn't want to think about a spill-over on the element...so the crockpot.
