Very simple to put together in 20 minutes, layer in a casserole dish and pop it in the oven while you spend the rest of your weeknight doing what you want. You can even make this dish faster if on Sunday you brown your beef and your veggies.  You can cool them down, put in a glass container and then they are ready to assemble on Monday night. For me, Monday night is the hardest for dinner as Mondays are always overloaded with work, school activities or appointments.  Take 20 minutes on a Sunday to prep and then on Monday night when you get home, boil you needles, layer and in the oven for 40 minutes covered, and 10 uncovered.
