Looking for a main dish kids will like making and eating? Try this quick casserole from Irene Delbaugh of York, Pennsylvania. "I've served it quite often when time is short. Children especially enjoy it," she comments.
"This is one of my standby recipes," reports Valorie Walker of Bradley, South Carolina.

They're delicious served over rice, and leftovers reheat well," she adds.
