Dei Fratelli makes wonderful canned tomato products and this recipe was on the back of a tomato sauce label. I haven't tried it yet but it sounds like great comfort food that both kids and adults would enjoy. Simple steps even a beginner can follow.

This recipe was strange - good flavor, but odd looking I have never "cooked" with croutons before and thought I would give it a try. My 5 yr old son helped me prepare the milk/egg mixture, and he wasnt even sure about eating the casserole. Just seeing the croutons baked in the cheese on top was not the best presentation. BUT.. once I got past that, it was okay. I used ground turkey and added some chopped garlic to the mixture. Makes a BIG dinner for hungry eaters.
