Aunt Janice’s Recipe For “More”

Aunt Janice’s Recipe For “More”

Aunt Janice shared a recipe when she was in college which was a long time ago. She said she lived in a Coop (cooperative) House,(24 girls and a housemother). This was one of the girls favorite recipes. They had "MORE "very often.
In a Coop House they did their own cooking, and cleaning. For two semester she was the House Manager, which meant she did the menu planning and the grocery shopping for 24 girls.
Growing up mom use to make this casserole quite often. She would add tomato soup instead of tomatoes, and mexi-corn to give it a little zip. I have made it often when my children were growing up as well. You will love how easy this is to make and affordable. It is a recipe that is perfect for busy nights.
"More" is a very hearty recipe that is very filling for your family. Just add some garlic bread and a salad!
Don't be surprised if your kids ask for this every week!
