My friend made me this creamy casserole when I brought my twins home from the hospital. It's quick to make, but special enough to serve to guests. At 76 cents per serving, this is one tasty bargain. —Valerie Gee, West Seneca, New York

"I made it vegetarian. I used Vegetable broth(low sodium) instead of chicken broth and Tofu instead of turkey. I made a basic biscuit from scratch(just search basic biscuit) super easy. While the meal was cooking I made the biscuits. Everything organic and whole wheat flour. Who says healthy can't be easy and good? Seasoned with salt, pepper, onion powder and it was a hit."
