Autumn Leaves Casserole

Zelda Hopkins


This colorful casserole brings to mind the bright reds and yellows of fall. I like to make it in the Autumn, like Oct.and Sept., Its a scrumptious meal and the cold just slips away. A small salad and it will make you very happy. So give this a try and see if it reminds you of Autumn.
