This is sort of like meatloaf, except all of the ingredients appear in the casserole with their own layers. Also, this recipe has sliced potatoes and a cheese topping. For a healthier version of this main dish, I would use lean ground beef or ground turkey, and reduced fat cheese.

Should the ground beef be browned first? I just can't imagine putting it in raw, then having all that grease swimming in the dish after its baked.
