Comfort Casserole :)

Comfort Casserole

(8 Servings)

5 Medium Potatoes, Peeled and Sliced ¼ inch thick

½ Cup Rice, Uncooked

1 Lb Hamburger, Broken Up and Cooked (I use organic)

½ Lrg Yellow Onion, Sliced and broken into Rings

3 Medium Carrots, Peeled and Sliced (about 1 cup)

Butter or Pam Spray (to coat Casserole dish)

2 Cups Water

1 Cup of White Wine (or water)

1 Can Cream of Celery Soup (or any other cream soup)

1 Tbsp. Sugar

1 Tbsp. Salt

1 tsp. Black Pepper

1 Tbsp. Italian Seasoning

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a large casserole dish (or 9x13 cake pan) with butter or Pam spray. Layer potato slices, rice, hamburger, onion (broken into rings) and carrot slices, (in that order) evenly in the pan. Pour 2 cups of water evenly over casserole.

In a separate bowl mix cream of celery soup with 1 cup of white wine (or water), sugar, salt and pepper. Pour evenly over casserole.

Sprinkle Italian seasoning evenly over the top of casserole.

Bake covered (with lid or foil) for 1 hour.

Continue baking uncovered for an additional ½ hour.

* Serve with a toss green salad on the side for a complete healthy meal!
