Cheat steak, Pepper soup, No noodle lasagna


I received a copy of a wonderful cookbook prepared by Shari Marsh. It is made up of recipes from the Marsh family. The book includes those from recipe cards, slips of paper and backs of church bulletins. Shari said her mother-in-law was an excellent cook and now we can enjoy some of her recipes, too.
Cheat steak
Place enough foil into a 13×9 in. pan to be able to cover the roast for cooking
3 lb. roast
Heinz 57 sauce, enough to cover the roast
1 pkg. dry onion soup mix
1 can cream of mushroom soup
salt & pepper to taste
Place roast into foil-lined pan. Spread Heinz 57 sauce on top, then spread soup on and add salt & pepper. Seal all inside the foil. Cook at 350 degrees for 3 hours – no peeking!
Pepper soup
2 lbs. ground beef
1 large onion, chopped
1 can (28 oz.) tomato sauce
1 can (28 oz.) diced tomatoes
2 C cooked rice
2 C chopped green peppers
2 beef bouillon cubes

Layer in a 9×9 pan as follows: zucchini, cottage cheese mixture, meat sauce, mozzarella, and then repeat. Top with ¼ cup Romano cheese. Bake uncovered 45 minutes. Let stand for 20 minutes before serving. Serves 9.
She said – “I just spent 15 minutes searching for my phone in my car, while using my flashlight on my phone.” Oh no, could this be old age?
