I found this in a magazine and had to change it to suit my personal taste and also because I didn't have all ingredients on hand. The result tasted great!

Great casserole. We found it a little dry, though, and added about 1/2 cup of milk. We also feel like it could use a little more cheese and broccoli. Thanks for posting this! We'll definitely be having it again.
