What a fabulous and easy throw together casserole, with lOADS of flavour too! I halved the quantities, and we ate it for a light and yet VERY flavourful supper dish, with crusty home-made bread on the side! I also used low-fat cream cheese, and believe it or not, a low-fat spreadable blue cheese too - thus lowering the fat-content even more! Thanks for a great recipe - a keeper for us! FT:-)
Made recipe as posted except left out the onions.. I did add a dash of onion powder though.. Very Very tasty dish. Had a 9x13 casserole dish that it worked great in. Would of had leftovers for lunch tommorow, but we knocked it down. Great Recipe.. Made for Market tag.
