Dinner Tonight: Comfort Food


I haven’t posted a recipe in awhile, so I thought I’d jump in with one that saved the day when I was craving comfort food. I didn’t really have a plan on the day I made this up, so I started rummaging around for what I had. It’s a throwback to my Minnesota roots, meals that contain everything in one dish – so yummy.

Spinach/rice11 lb ground beef
1 onion
1 can diced tomatoes
1 pkg frozen chopped spinach
Italian seasoning
2ish cups cooked brown rice
1ish cup cottage cheese
Shredded cheddar cheese

Saute the onion, add ground beef and cook until done. Add the diced tomatoes and frozen spinach, seasoning, and salt. Remove from heat, stir in rice and cottage cheese. Pour into a 9×11 baking dish and cover with shredded cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, or until hot and bubbly.
