At the office where I worked years ago, we women often shared our favorite recipes at lunchtime. This casserole came from a co-worker, and my family has enjoyed it for some 30 years. Besides being easy and quick to prepare, it's very economical. It serves well for church suppers and potlucks, and it's a real time-saver on washdays!
