Having my recipe selected as a winner is a special thrill for me—my husband is a manager of the Penn State Univ. poultry research farm. Baking has always been my favorite type of cooking. So, when I got married 9 years ago, I was happy to have this simple yet delicious recipe—which originated with my aunt and was passed on to my mom. Now, with three small children (they're 6, 4, and 1), I need all the fast dishes I can find! It's great for a luncheon...or served with salad and rolls, for supper.

MY REVIEW

Very yummy. I cooked the veggies first so they weren't crunchy, and didn't add the rosemary. It needed a bit of salt, too! Loved the topping :)

Made this for guests, and everybody loved it! Even sent the recipe home with a gal. I omitted the rosemary. Yum! Will be making this again.

"Comfort food" is a good way to describe this yummy, fantastic dish. I auditioned it tonight for the starring role in a dinner party I'm having after Christmas, and my husband and I LOVED IT! I increased the vegetables and mayonnaise slightly; also the cornflakes and almonds, which make a wonderful topping. Absolutely delish!!! Thanks for this great recipe!

I received the recipe from a co-worker who raved about this dish. So I made this casserole for my daughter's Baby Shower & it was a hit! I used all the mentioned ingredients- no changes. So now I am making it again for supper for my daughter coming home tom. with her new baby! Fast, Easy and Delicious! Thank you. Cia
