This is super simple, although you can complicate the heck out of it. I will acknowledge that it is your life and if you want things complicated then more power to you. This one came about because we had left overs and were hungry. When your fridge is stocked with meat, veggies and meltable dairy things it makes throwing casseroles together easy.
