Cheesy Pasta Bake - The Best! With Italian Sausage, Fresh Mozzarella and Wine!

Cheesy Pasta Bake

This is the best!! Italian Sausage, fresh Mozzarella, Wine...make it!

Can a person have too many pasta recipes? Possibly, especially if you’re on a budget. It’s almost too easy to turn to pasta dishes, so when I do make one, I try to make it the best! You’ll love this warm and comforting dish loaded with fresh mozzarella, Italian sausage and for a healthier twist, ground chicken or turkey. Use ground beef if you’d rather, though.

Classic American Goulash sometimes called Macaroni Beef or Chili Mac.

Mom’s Classic American Goulash

Mom’s Classic American Goulash is an old American standby that only has the slightest resemblance to its namesake, Hungarian Goulash; both types of Goulash contain beef and both have noodles and that’s pretty much where the similarities end. The Classic American Goulash is a casserole of ground beef, noodles, tomatoes, and a few seasonings, sometimes topped with a little cheese. Simple, tasty, cheap and filling, Goulash is familiar to generations of Americans and is comfort food in many families.

Chicken Pot Pie with Cheater's Puff Pastry

Chicken Pot Pie like you WISH your Grandma made!

I originally posted this Chicken Pot Pie in November of 2011, one of my very first posts and absolutely favorite recipes. Today, as I made it again in 2019, I updated with new photos. That night in 2011, I had been looking at Time’s Money Issue (we as a nation were still recovering from the Great Recession) and became sidetracked. Pretty soon, I was clicking on one link after another; you know how that goes, right?

Buttermilk Biscuits for Topping for a 13 x 9″ Casserole or Ramekins

Years ago I came across this recipe, so long ago, I’m not sure where it came from. This makes enough to cover a 13 x 9 inch casserole or to make a topping for 6 individual Pot Pies, like my “Chicken Pot Pie you WISH your Grandma Made!” They also make some of the best drop or rolled or patted out biscuits you’ll ever taste! Can I say superb? Yep, I just did!
