Ive made a lot of vegetable casseroles and this is one of the best. I substituted tomatoes for the Pimentos and used Panko bread crumbs. Also just 1/2 the cheese to make it a little less caloric. Delicious! WIll use this recipe for different veggies i.e. Cauliflower, carrots, etc...

I made this dish for Memorial Day 3 years ago. I now am asked to bring it every year and I need to double the recipe and there is no leftovers. Thanks for a great dish.

This easy to prepare recipe will be among those we eat often. I also used diced tomatoes, the Italian flavored ones. Also, instead of plain bread crumbs, I used the Italian-style, and it added a little more flavor to the dish.

Instead of pimentos I used the petite diced tomatoes & used french fried onions over the cheese instead of the bread crumbs that I didn't have. This dish is absolutely delicious. my husband & I both loved it!
