All my kids are grown and most are married, but they often come home for Sunday dinner, and their most requested meal is this casserole. When you get several people in the kitchen chopping, slicing and preparing, it comes together super fast—and you get to catch up on all the family happenings. —Beverly Matthews, Richland, Washington
