Reviews for Fresh Vegetable Casserole
"I used unsweetened apple juice for liquid. Next time I will just eliminate the liquid since the vegetables produce plenty on their own. Also, I used my 8x8 baking pan and felt I would like more cracker crumble on top. Probably will double the crackers next time."
"Great recipe. quick and easy. I use Ritz crackers."
