Daily Inspiration

This is a nice comfort food casserole. I made a few changes, but minor ones. I added extra tomato juice to the tomato paste and extra spices. The result was a tasty meal and we served it with a side salad.

We enjoyed this plus it brought back memories. Made as directed except we skipped the green peppers -- an easy meal using ingredients we always have on hand. Thanks for sharing!
