Easy Weeknight Dinner Recipe

Tuesday, November 16, 2021


Hello, My Lovelies!  The holidays are almost here, and I wanted to share with you this quick and easy weeknight dinner recipe that your family might like.  Mine loved it!  You might want to pin this one because even though our lives become more hectic this time of year, we still need warm meals, and this one is definitely a comfort dish!

This one appeared in my inbox from Better Homes & Gardens a while back, but I just this week made it.  The best part about this recipe is that it only has four ingredients!  

Upside-Down Pizza Casserole


1 ½ pounds lean ground beef 
1 15 ounce can Italian-style tomato sauce
1 ½ cups shredded mozzarella cheese (6 ounces)
1 10 ounce package refrigerated biscuits (10 biscuits)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. In a large skillet cook beef until no longer pink, stirring frequently. Drain off fat. Stir in tomato sauce; heat through. Transfer mixture to a 2-quart rectangular baking dish. Sprinkle mixture with cheese.

Step 2
Flatten each biscuit with your hands; arrange the biscuits on top of the cheese. Bake in the preheated oven about 15 minutes or until biscuits are golden. Makes 5 servings.

Here is the LINK to the recipe on the BH&G website.

Cook's Notes:  Choose your family's favorite tomato sauce.  The website shows that the test kitchen used a sauce with mushrooms.  I used 2 containers of Pillsbury Grands biscuits (for a total of ten) because I had them.  Normal size might work better because the recipe calls for a 2-quart baking dish.  I hand grated the mozzarella cheese.

Also on the site, the cook cut the biscuits in half, and I decided to try that. 

I served this dish with a simple Greek slaw with feta cheese and green onions.  We liked the combination, and slaw can be made ahead of time.

This recipe only took me about 35 minutes from start to finish.  
More time for tea and reading blogs!

This might be my new go-to quick comfort food recipe.  What's yours?

Until next time...
