Need some Bloggy help!!!

Okay, I am going to somehow spin this as a post about how unorganized I am ... and then I'll get to why I need the help!

I am soooo unorganized, that I can't even find my recipe books from when we moved 2 years ago. They are in one of the many unopened boxes sitting in the unfinished side of the basement I was going to organize 1 year ago. Out of sight, out of mind... I have got to get going, or my poor children will be sooo mad when they finally have to put me in the old folks home, and need to spend days sorting thru all my accumulated junk!

Here's my panic! A group of my girlfriends thought it would be great fun to form a dinner-making group. You know, you make the same dinner 8 times, and then everyone trades. Voila, you have 8 different dinners, life becomes less chaotic, and you have time to clean your basement.

Well, I have nothing. NO IDEAS! Nada! HELP! If you happen to have a favorite awesome EASY recipe that serves 5-6, and is somewhat inexpensive to make (no steak casseroles please! I have to make 8 of them...) and would like to share the recipe with cooking-challenged me, would you go to my regular blog and post it? As an example, one girl is making Mexican Beef tips (which can be served in taco shells/tortillas, over rice or in hoagie buns). I will be forever grateful, and will name one of my clean shelves in the basement in your honor!

Well hmmmmm
1 or 2 lbs ground beef
1 or 2 cans pasta sauce
1 green pepper
1 red pepper
1 onion
1 or 2 boxes of pasta (any kind works really) I like the squiggly looking kind
1 or 2 16 oz shredded cheese (I use the mexican mix kind)
Brown the ground beef
boil the pasta
Sautee the peppers and onions (diced into small bite size pieces)
After all that is done throw them into a cassarole dish
Layer like so :
Thin layer of pasta sauce on bottom of pan
Ground beef
Mixture of peppers and onion
Rest of pasta sauce
And cheese on top
Pop in the oven til cheese is melted at 350 degrees (about 15 min) and bingo.... a pasta cassarole! Feeds about 8 to 10
Hope this helps :)
BTW- You have been tagged on my blog :)
