      This was a simple easy casserole dish to make. I adjusted the amount of thyme and oregano to about 3/4 of a teaspoon to suit our taste. The flavor was very good and the consistency very nice due to the milk/flour/cheese mixture. I was a little nervous when I added this mixture thinking it might turn out more like macaroni and cheese but it blends in very well (and my husband doesn't like cream sauces). The only thing I might do different next time would be to use 3 Tablespoons of flour to thicken it up a bit but it was very good just as prepared. The ingredients are not complicated, and are ones that I almost always have in my kitchen so this casserole is one that I could easily throw together.

      I liked this because it was fast to prepare, good and filling. The only change I made to this recipe was to use a can of Italian flavored diced tomatoes (without draining it)because that's what I had on hand. Thank you for sharing this recipe!

      Sorry, but this was not for us. Very bland and the flour and milk mixture made the dish taste pastey.
