  • I would google it. I ALWAYS google my ingredients and then make a decision. I have come across some really great receipes that way!

  • in a jumbo skillet brown a lb. of hamburger with some onion
    drain, return to pan add 1 can of tomato sauce and 1 can stewed tomatoes
    add one can of water and one cup elbow pasta
    1/4 A1 steak sauce and add pepper/garlic powder
    simmer until noodles are cooked usually 20 minutes

    you could whip up a tuna pasta salad and serve with chicken nuggets

  • I suggest tater-tot casserole:

    Press a pound of ground beef into the bottom of a casserole dish.
    Open a can of cream of mushroom soup and spread it over the meat.
    Layer a package of tater-tots over the soup.
    Bake in a 350 oven for about 45 minutes. It can sit for a while and reheats beautifully.
    I serve it with green beans on the side.

  • Go to, and follow the link to her one dish dinners site (I think it's but not 100% positive, that why go to the other and follow the link).
