SPREAD meat mixture onto bottom of 9-inch square baking dish sprayed with cooking spray; top with prepared Dinner.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Substitute
Prepare using extra-lean ground beef.
Substitute
Substitute 1/2 tsp. dried basil leaves, crushed, for the cinnamon and nutmeg.
Keeping it Safe
If preparing a casserole ahead of time, be sure to cover the baking dish tightly and refrigerate until ready to bake. Add about 10 minutes to the chilled casserole's baking time to ensure that it is heated through before serving.
