** Nicole, my kids have requested that rib meal once a week now for 3 weeks. Last week I used chicken in place of ribs... not as good, but they liked it. I also added bell pepper, carrots, and potatoes to it. They gobbled it up.
My husband loves cheeseburger pie. It's a weight watchers recipe, though it's soo good! Most of the time when I make it I don't measure... just go with what looks good, like the meat to rice ratio. Seasonings.. oh yah.. bring on the garlic. It's a great meal to use up that left over rice. Hope you enjoy as much as we do!
Cheeseburger Pie - serves 4
1 cup tomatoe sauce
4 oz onion, diced
1/2 medium bell pepper
1 teaspoon sugar
1/2 - 1 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
8 oz cooked ground beef
4 oz mild cheddar cheese, shredded - reserve some for top!
2 cups cooked rice
Combine first six ingredients. Simmer until veggies are tender. Add the ground beef, cheese and rice. Mix well. Put mixture into a greased casserole dish. Sprinkle reserved cheese on top. Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
My mom also made a dish with those mulicolored spiral pasta, ground meat, tomatoe sauce, carrots, green beans, seasoning.. it was sooo good!! I will have to get that one from her. She was a weight watcher instructor for years... and had the best recipes! MMMM
