  19. The Italian Sausage, Green Bean and garbanzo bean soup really sets my taste buds tingling but so does the kicked up mac and cheese. Mac and cheese was a staple in our house when I was growing up in the 40's. One of my best memories was coming in from school on a snowy day (no bussing back then) and smellng my grandmother's mac and cheese and I am sure she would be the first to try this one.

  105. The hamburger strogonoff sounds perfectly delish. In these days of sky high prices at the market I find myself using ground beef more and more and the best part is that when I find great recipes using ground beef like this one from Libby's they always turn out to be a big hit with the family. I have a recipe which was given to me by a Girl Scout leader friend years ago which I just tried and was astounded with how good it was.
    Poor Man's shepard's Pie.
    1 lb. ground beef
    1 can condensed tomato soup
    1 can Libby's cut green beans
    3-4 cups mashed potatoes
    1/2 c. shredded cheese of choice
    Pan fry the ground beef, stir in the tomato soup and green beans and pour into a casserole. Top with a layer of the mashed potatoes and sprinkle with the cheese and a dash of paprika if you like. Bake at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes until potatoes are brown and the cheese melted.
