This lowcarb cheeseburger casserole has all the flavor of an old fashioned cheeseburger but with out the heavy dose of carbs.

I remember eating in diners. They were decorated in a lot of chrome and usually turquoise or red vinyl seating. The food was always basic home-style, hot, and plentiful. I loved it when we sat at the counter and I got to twirl on the stools. The. Best. Part.

Ravioli is pasta that has been filled . . .
