This sounds like a wonderful recipe, but would it still turn out okay if you browned & drained the ground beef first? This would SIGNIFICANTLY the lower the fat content of this casserole. Have you ever tried it this way? Also this would reduce the liquid in the recipe so it might need appx. 1/4 to 1/3 cup of liquid or beef broth.
