World's Best Lasagna

Johnny Marzetti Casserole

Rating: 4.5 stars 126
Kids love this buffet-ready casserole dish. My mother-in-law used to make a simpler version of this for my husband when he was growing up. This version pushes the flavor profile a bit. I prefer to have this dish sit overnight before baking as the flavors improve and the pasta absorbs some of the sauce so the consistency is just right.

This delicious slow cooker meal of chicken and vegetables pairs up nicely with couscous and pita bread.

Grandma's Corn Chowder

Rating: 4.5 stars 756
