I created this side dish idea from pantry & freezer staples I had on hand at the time, you can select what ever veggies you have for this delicious side dish. It turned out great & we sure did love it.

It is quick & easy, & as I began checking the pantry, I discovered that I had all of these items & they should all create a wonderful side dish to go with the Grilled chicken & Pork Roast I was making. I created this as I went along and my husband really enjoyed it, he had 3 nice size servings. Some days you just need something quick and easy, & this was it for us. It was a cheesy good idea.
