This is a hand me down recipe, from where I don't know, but it is among many in my family recipe box. I like this as do my sons, but DH is not used to casseroles so he won't try it. Oh well all the more for us.

Easy to make old fashioned casserole. I have a recipe very similar to this one from 1957 using cracker crumb topping. The only change I made was to add about 1/2 cup frozen peas with the veggies, and I added one teaspoon of sugar with the tomatoes. A great dish to put in the oven and go outside to get some gardening done!
