In 1973 when I bought my first microwave oven, I attended a cooking class to learn houw to use it.

This is one of the recipes we learned though I have changed it up to make it easier to prepare. I do not use the microwave at all.

This has to be my husband's favorite dish and it is a great casserole for gatherings as it is a real crowd pleaser.
