Cheesy Vegetable Casserole (microwave version)

Rev BJ Friley


Microwave Setting...HIGH 100%/MEDIUM HIGH 70%

Microwave cooking time: 14 minutes

REMEMBER: If you want to substitute fresh vegetables for the frozen you will need about 2 1/2 cups. The vegetables should be cleaned, cut into pieces, and blanched before adding to the cheese sauce.

REMEMBER: When melting the cheese, both in the microwave oven and on the stove, be sure not to overcook or use high heat. Overcooked cheese will be tough, stringy, oily and may crust on the pan.
