"Just made this for dinner. Adjusted it a little by adding a zucchini, substituting 1/2 chopped pepper for the pimento, and mozarella for the parmesan cheese. My family loved it---even my husband who doesn't like vegetables! It made a huge casserole, and they finished the whole thing! (I was looking forward to leftovers :( ) Will be making this one again."
