Remove cover and bake for another 10 to 15 minutes or until edges are bubbly and top is lightly browned. Remove from oven and let stand for 10 minutes and serve with your favorite meats,poultry or seafood. My family and friends love this dish and I have been asked to bring it to dinner's I've been invited to.
