Nestor C. my Ukraine friend from the south side of Chicago taught me how to cook his wonderful 1947 family recipe. It is always a "must bring" at all pot luck gatherings. Great served with mashed potatoes on the side. Occasionally we would layer the bottom of the casserole with a jar of drained sauerkraut . Polish rye bread is a must with this meal.
