Every year we look forward to our vegetable garden and it seems like the vegetables are always ready at the same time. So, I devised a casserole that would include a lot of our vegetables we grow in the garden. This is a well received dish that we like to take to picnics and parties. Be ready to pass out this recipe, because people will ask for it! ENJOY!
