We enjoyed a similar casserole at a friend's house many years ago. She didn't have a recipe but told me the basic ingredients. I eventually came up with my own version and have shared the recipe many times since. It goes great with ham but also is filling by itself. —Doris Tschorn, Levittown, New York

"I added 1 c. chopped cooked turkey and put it in the casserole after the 2nd layer of noodles. I substituted grated Mexican mix cheese for cheddar. I also cut the recipe in half but it'll serve 4. I will freeze the remaining to have for another meal."
