This is a wonderful addition to any holiday meal. It is incredibly delicious with all the vegetables and cheese makes it very filling too.
I added this to our Christmas meal several years ago and everyone loved it.
This dish should be prepared the day before and then just pop in the oven the day of your dinner.

This recipe and pic come from Cooking Light, which makes it a healthier alternative too.
