The taste was good ~ I used orange instead of green pepper, and added a dash of cayenne pepper ~ am not sure what the consistency was supposed to be, but my casserole was watery! It might be a better consistency if 2-3 beaten eggs were added to make it more quiche-like? Baked for 40 minutes ~ Made for Spring PAC Orphanage 2011.
