Cheeseburger Casserole Reboot

I’m a huge fan of Gina Homolka and her blog Skinnytaste. My mother bought me her cookbook a while ago and it’s been an absolute lifesaver. She has so many wonderful family dinner recipes that taste amazing but cut back on the calories and fat.

Sorry in advance to all the Italians out there who might be horrified by my experimentations, but they do say that taste is subjective right?

I’ve borrowed ideas from different recipes I’ve tried and included some of my own, to create the heartiest, thickest, most savory version of my idea of the perfect bolognese sauce!Continue Reading
