Wanda is my visiting teaching partner and good friend,
and since this is her recipe I knew it would be wonderful.
She says it's been in her family for years!
Here it is straight from my notebook/cookbook.
(I just cut and pasted it here so these are Wanda's words.)
Oh and I've never been able to find these miniature lasagna noodles, so I just use regular curly ones.
When I doubled this I just use 1 1/2 lbs hamburger, rather than 2 lbs and it works great.
I have made this many times but I have never tasted it since I have the Rozier milk/cheese allergy.
But everyone I've made it for says they love it.
I've seen little children practically inhale this stuff.
So last night I was feeling bad, again, that I can't make dinner for Rich and Grant's parents in Utah
....my newest 2 grandsons.
I was there in bed thinking about this for a long while when
I suddenly remembered how it was when my sons were out on their missions.
I prayed everyday for those 8 years combined,
that they were eating well and that good families were inviting them over for dinner.
We would have our local missionaries over often for dinner...
thinking that our sons would be fed well where they were serving.
So I thought today I would make these casseroles for 2 families here
in honor of my 2 new grandsons in Utah.
It won't help them directly, but it makes me feel less of a slacker.
I doubled the recipe above to make these 2- (8 x 10 size)
I've doubled it before and made a very hearty nearly overflowing 9 x13 for a larger family.
I was also able today to make Dennis a little taster. So I baked his up just now and presented it to him.
He came back in here 5 minutes later and said it was excellent and wants more. Uh oh.
