The addition of orzo pasta makes this bake a sensational alternative to the classic broccoli casserole. There's a fine blend of cheese in every creamy bite.—Shana Conradt, Greenville, Wisconsin


  • 1 can (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of celery soup, undiluted
  • 1/4 cup shredded Asiago cheese
  • 2 tablespoons 2% milk
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

  • 1/3 cup chopped sweet red pepper
  • 1/4 cup shredded part-skim mozzarella cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dry bread crumbs
