- Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Lightly grease a large casserole dish.
- Place the ground pork in a large skillet and cook over medium heat, stirring to crumble, until evenly browned.

Place in bowl with the ground pork.

"Sometimes I don't understand the ratings on this site at all. This recipe is a case in point. Agree with the reviewer who said he didn't like the taste or texture of the ground pork. Simple vegetar..." See moreian Ratatouille is much better. Call this something else."
"CREATOR'S COMMENTS: When I make this dish I do not crumble the ground pork; I make semi-rough meatballs about 1/2 thumb size. That way not every bite has pork in it. Also, I have found that using Ritz..." See more brand crackers makes a better "crust" with the cheeses."
