This casserole really hits the spot when it's cold outside. It's tasty and filling. It will warm you right up.

"Made this for my husband and me - a nice amount for 2 people and it was a nice change from your usual tomato/noodle beef casserole. I didn't have any olives so just added more corn. It was easier than the recipe looks, too!"
