Seven Layer Casserole from Mennonite Girls Can Cook

1 onion, sliced into rings
2-3 carrots, thinly sliced

Sprinkle with a layer of rice and then peas. Arrange sausages on top. Combine tomato soup with water and pour evenly over casserole. Season with salt and pepper. Cover and bake at 350°F for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Modifications:
-I used 2 packages of beef smoked sausage.
-I used long grain and wild rice.

Here's what you'll need:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Thinly slice 2-3 potatoes and lay them out in a baking dish that has. been lightly sprayed with cooking spray

Thinly slice an onion into rings and lay them on top of the potatoes

Thinly slice some carrots and lay them on top of the onions.

Pour the rice over the veggies.

Add the peas.

Cut up the sausage and lay it on top.

Mix the tomato soup and water and pour it over everything.

Cover and bake for 1 1/2 to 2 hours.

Here's what you'll end up with:
Our Thoughts:
We loved this dish!  It was so hearty, comforting, and filling.  You could add any kind of veggies to this dish like corn, squash, and zucchini.

I substituted beef smoked sausage but you could also use pork or turkey or a combination of all three. 

If you are looking for a different and delicious dish, give this one a try!

Hope you enjoy!

looks great! I think I might try it with hamburger on half (I have lots of leftover hamburger) and no meat on the other half since I'm vegetarian. It's great to have a dish where you can do that since most of the time the meat is mixed in and you can't.
