When visiting our granddaughter at the University of Michigan we ate a several home-style food restaurants. This casserole was featured at one. Vanessa asked if I could make it at home. The owner was kind enough to give me the recipe. I think Vanessa took us there just to get the recipe. Now I make it for her when she is on break from school.
