"Ive made a lot of vegetable casseroles and this is one of the best. I substituted tomatoes for the Pimentos and used Panko bread crumbs. Also just 1/2 the cheese to make it a little less caloric. Delicious! WIll use this recipe for different veggies i.e. Cauliflower, carrots, etc..."

"This easy to prepare recipe will be among those we eat often. I also used diced tomatoes, the Italian flavored ones. Also, instead of plain bread crumbs, I used the Italian-style, and it added a little more flavor to the dish."
