I had a family recipe like that. I have the recipe, but unfortunately one distinctive ingredient - ring-shaped pasta - is not available where I live. It was a casserole that also called for creamed corn and chicken and rice soup and green peppers. It didn't have a ton of flavor but was my go-to comfort food growing up. Likewise, I keep bags of instant mashed potatoes on hand because my kids would get a craving for them whenever they were sick.

I agree on the peas! Frozen PETITE peas only in my book.


Will definitely try it. Looks yummy to me!

About Me

  • Carmen Staicer is a whirlwind of energy and execution, who never sleeps and drinks way too much coffee. She works from home as Social Media Programs Manager for SheKnows, and is the mom to six kids, most of whom play instruments, sing or dance and all of whom are much smarter than she will ever be. In other words, her house is never ever quiet or still. A concentration of asthma, food allergies, spectrum disorders and learning disabilities means that she spends an awful lot of time second guessing herself and Dr. Googling, as well as learning to cook everything the family might like to eat. In her spare time, she enjoys reading, boxing (she has her Black Belt in Muay Thai), sleeping, exploring coffee shops, photography, ballet class and cooking. She excels in being a smart mouth and has her major in sarcasm, with a dual minor in BS studies and avoiding laundry.
