Gosh, I have been making this easy, quick and delicious casserole since my son was about 5 years old -he will be 48 in November. I call it One (1) Good Vegetable Casserole, because you just use one of each ingredient -easy to remember. Over the years I have made changes to make it quicker and easier, such as you can use fresh, frozen or canned vegetables. I use to always use fresh -now I use whatever I have on hand; you can also use different soups and size pans. I took it to a covered dish last night. One lady asked, "Who made this dish?" Then said, “You always bring the best dishes."

    *Although I have made this dish since my son was a young child (and he requests it when he comes for a visit or when I go there -and he makes it a lot himself); he has been a vegetarian for over 12 years; so now when I make it for him (or anyone who doesn't want meat in their casserole) I use 1/2 can Cream of Potato Soup and 1/2 can Cream of Celery Soup. OR 1 can of either in place of the Cream of Chicken Soup.

    NOTE 1: Usually, I dice my vegetables; however, you can chop or dice them -your preference. Remember, though, whether you choose to coarsely chop, or to dice the vegetables it will determine the length of time it has to bake. If you chop them, allow more time to bake, 10 to 15 minutes extra, depending on the size of the chop (If you use frozen -they are already a good size.).

    NOTE 2: If you use canned vegetables, drain well.
