This was one of my Brother's favorite casserole. He would almost eat 1/2 of the casserole dish by hisself. He liked the frozen vegetables but he preferred the fresh veggies when they were in season. So I hope you enjoy the dish like he did.

This is very similar to one of my favorite casseroles too. My recipe includes the exact same ingredients plus adding 2 cups leftover cooked rice. It gives the casserole a little more substance. I love it!
