If you are a busy mom like me, making dinner at the end of the day can feel like a dreadful task. You haven't even thawed the meat out or prepped any veggies. No worries! I invented this delicious casserole recipe that uses the left overs in your refrigerator! This will have you and your family eating a healthy, nutritious dinner in no time and give you some extra minutes for self care. Enjoy!
