Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    potaoes--8 med. --peeled and cut in fourths
    onion-large--diced
    bell pepper green-diced (1/2 cup)
    garlic-1 whole diced
    1 lb. lean 93% fat free ground beef
    velvetta cheese 6 oz--sliced
    2 tbls. margarine
    2% reduced fat milk-1/2 cup or less to add to potaoes when you mash them
    spices such as oregano, basil etc --optional

Directions

brown ground beef and add onions and green peppers and garlic as you brown it...drain any grease after it is cooked..(you can pat off any excess grease with paper towel if you wish) I season this with some spices of my choice as it cooks...(optional)
Peel and quarter white potatoes and bring to a boil as meat cooks...drain potaoes when done and mash...add the margarine and milk as needed to the potaoes..( don't make them too runny) Take a large round casserole and put one layer of potatoes and cover with part of the meat, then place slices of velvetta cheese across that, continue layers like this until you run out of ingredients with chees being on top....DO NOT COVER--Put into 350 degree oven (preheated) for about 45 minutes until cheese melts and browns on top...( I broil mine at the end for a few seconds to brown the cheese a little)...Let the casserole cool for about 10 minutes before slicing it like a pie of cake...You can add ketchup to it or a chioplte mustard to spice it up a little on your plate..or eat it as is... VERY GOOD and very filling.
Will feed at least 6 people....cut as pie wedges

Number of Servings: 6
