Pam is a great friend. I had surgery recently and she made me this wonderful casserole that is delicious and freezes well. I ate a small portion and froze the casserole in the container she brought it in for a few weeks. I served the remainder tonight to my daughter and her husband. Everyone enjoyed it. It is very easy to make as well as delicious. Makes a nice dish to take to a sick friend or a pot luck dinner.
