"I've made this veggie dish for quite a few years now and we all love it. If there are any left overs they are great reheated in the microwave. Simple to make and pretty to look at."

"My mom used to make this casserole and I LOVED it. I make it now for at-home dinners and potlucks at work (I always bring home an empty dish!) This is just as good reheated in the microwave. Yum!"
