Wow, the whole family liked this and that is quite an accomplishment. This dish was very rich and cheesy. The Italian dressing mix gave it a zestiness. This dish is great for when you are short on time. Thanks Nurse Di.

Good dish, it makes a lot! I froze my leftovers and it was even better the second time around. I used skim milk and low fat cottage and parm. cheese. Also added turkey sausage for a little different flavor.
