  • This is a large recipe so you can freeze half, cut the recipe in half, feed a large family, or have lots of leftovers.
  • I used a 5 quart skillet for this recipe so I could cook the meat and vegetable mixture in the same pan that I bake it in.  If you do not have a skillet this big, you can cook the filling, then transfer it to a 9x13 casserole dish.
