Hamburger Mix Skillet Macaroni Lasagna

Here’s another good, easy casserole to make with your home canned or frozen hamburger mix.  If you can your own tomatoes and tomato sauce, you can use those too.  Similar to a lazy lasagna, it shows just how versatile the hamburger mix is; and it cuts off the time needed to thaw ground beef, chop vegetables, and cook them before getting started on the casserole.  If you are not fond of cottage cheese, or don’t have any on hand, it’s good without too.
I like top-of-the-stove dishes like this because they are quick and you don’t need to heat your oven.  We served ours with home-canned green beans and a nice crisp salad.
