"Yummy! Yummy! Yummy!!! This was so good! Next time I will try with crushed pineapple, as some in my family didn't care for the chunks! Lots of flavor and no cream of whatever soups!"

"My husband usually turns up his nose a casseroles, but I tried this one, and he loved it! He asked for it again a couple of days later. It's quick and simple. I halved the recipe because we live in a small RV, and I don't have much space, large bowls, or casseroles."
