Vegetable Noodle Bake

 Vegetable Noodle Bake
Traditional lasagna fixin's (minus the meat) make up Vegetable Noodle Bake, a satisfying casserole shared by field editor Dixie Terry, Goreville, Illinois. The egg noodles are a great substitute for the usual lasagna noodles. "If you're out of hamburger, serve the dish and no one will even notice it's meatless because it's so tasty," Dixie assures.
