    Since it had been a busy Saturday I needed a quick meal for dinner. I found this and quickly threw it together. I did use deli smoked turkey and fresh broccoli which I lightly steamed instead of frozen broccoli. I tasted the casserole before adding the cheese and almonds. Since I thought it was lacking something. I hurriedly opened up a can of cream of celery soup and mixed that in. Glad I did because it added that *something* that was missing. Family loved it.
