    Good old homemade macaroni and cheese... I got the recipe from Southern Living magazine maybe 30 years ago... I double the recipe and freeze an 8 x 8 aluminum pan for when I need to take food to someone:

    8 oz macaroni, cooked and drained
    Add: 2 c. cottage cheese
    8 oz. sour cream
    1 egg, slightly beaten
    3/4 t. salt
    2 c. sharp cheddar cheese (or a little more of any cheese)

    Mix; place mixture in a slightly greased 8 x 8 or 8 x 11 pan. Sprinkle the top with paprika and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.

    You'll get raves for this one!!

    Also think of a spaghetti-type dish, like mustacholi.

    I quite often make calico beans for pot lucks. Easy and good.

    I like to make cold macaroni salad dishes like tuna/mac and or chicken/mac. I use half mayo and half plain yoghurt to reduce the calories and cut up some onion and celery as well. Mix well, season to taste...
    I've also started taking deviled eggs to pot lucks, they go really fast, are pretty easy to make if you know the quick shell routine: cook 'em, put 'em in ice water till they are cold, knock 'em against the sink under running water and they peel beautifully.

    I always take some version of potatoes because we grow acres of potatoes and plant 21 different varieties. In the winter it is scalloped potatoes and in the summer it is potato salad with old fashioned home made boiled salad dressing (grandma's recipe). I tried taking cake once and I bake really good ones and got complaints about no potatoes!

    Do a search of the recipe section of the board and search Italian Beef. This can be cooked in a slow cooker and makes great sandwiches. Easy to cook, easy to carrie with very little mess to clean up.

    Heres mine, but you do have to cook it in the oven. It is one that you make and let sit in the fridge, and then bake right before you go. We have used this for years after Thanksgiving, to use some of the turkey meat, but it will work with whatever kind of meat you would like. HERE IS THE MOST IMPORTANT PART...YOU NEED TO USE A GOOD QUALITY MACARONI WITH DURUM SEMOLINA PASTA FLOUR...I use American Beauty brand. Make this the night before, or in the morning and it will be ready to bake and go!

    2 cups uncooked macaroni
    2 cups turkey, chicken, ham or your choice meat
    1 can cream of chicken soup
    1 can cream of mushroom soup
    3 cups milk
    8 oz. shredded cheddar cheese
    Combine all ingredients, seasoning as preferred, cover for 8 hours in refrigerator or overnight. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees and enjoy! Sometimes I put chips or bread crumbs on the top. Its always a hit at church potlucks!

    You may not want to make it in the heat of summer, but it is a great one to have on hand.

    Np3, I have a fantastic Mexican casserole...

    1 large bag of tostilla white corn chips
    1-1/2 # lean hamburger meat
    1 - can of cream of chicken mushroom soup
    1 - lg can enchilada sauce .. I use Old El Paso-(I don't like Pace)
    1 - lg jar of taco sauce ......" " " "
    1 large onion chopped
    Grated cheddar cheese

    Cut up onion, set aside...
    In large skillet.. cook hamburger meat till done ( all crumbly)
    Add enchilada sauce
    Add taco sauce
    Mix chicken mushroom soup with 1/2 can of water and add to meat mixture.. Stir all together good.
    Bring up to a simmer
    Take a 9 X 13 pan, spray with pam
    Take half bag of chips, lay them in the pan and slightly mash with your hands.
    Pour mix mixture all over chips
    Sprinkle onions over that
    Cover with grated cheddar cheese
    Bake in over at 350 till cheese is all bubbly and slighty brown. Take out and let sit about 10 minutes.

    Delicious, goes a long way, and so easy to fix. Serve with rest of chips..
