St. Patrick's Day dinner doesn't have to feature corned beef. An Irish beef stew, richly flavored with dark beer, braises to tenderness with carrots and onions. The stew is served with a scoop of traditional potato and cabbage colcannon.
This hearty casserole features ground beef, onion, green pepper, tomatoes and mushrooms simmered into a sauce to layer with cooked spaghetti, Cheddar cheese and cream of mushroom soup. Top with Parmesan and bake for a people-pleasing main dish.
