Kitty's Chinese Casserole

Katrina Freed


Decades ago a recipe for this casserole was passed around the neighborhood and everyone on our street loved it.

I lost the recipe and just recently spent some time making up this new one. If I could ever find the original I think mine would still make the grade. It passed the husband test and the brother in law test!

This is a simple, economical casserole that is full of flavor. The fresh vegetables not only add texture but so much flavor. The mixture of sauces adds savoriness to this dish. The soups mixed with the rice makes and the chow mein noodles on top add a wonderful crunch. This casserole should be a staple in everyone's recipe box for those busy weeknights. The Test Kitchen
