What a wonderful way to use leftover celery (which I always seem to have). Didn't have any Ritz crackers so I used saltines (leftover from making saltine candy - YUM!). I also used low fat cream of mushroom soup. Even with the modifications this tasted great - nice and crunchy with great flavor. Thanks for this unusual and easy recipe!

May whole family ate the entire dish! Great flavor, can add fresh diced jalapenos to spice it up if you like.

This is wonderful! Making this for the second time. I did not have the water chestnuts and used the dried crunchy onions because that is all I had. Toasted the almonds and added a little garlic powder because the hubby asked for it. 10 stars if I could give that!

Really good, in a retro 50s - 60s kind of way. The celery tastes very fresh and keeps this cream of *** soup casserole from tasting tired. We liked it! If the soup scares you off, then make a simple white sauce instead.

Nice side dish. I made it without almonds, used Saltine crackers and Cream of Chicken soup; it came out good. Note: 3 stalks of celery equal about a cup.

this was an excellent dish, very easy and quick to make. I added some carrots (which also added color) and some shredded cheddar cheese and it was a big hit.

Bravo! I'm always looking for new vegetable dishes and this one is superb. I eat meat sparingly, so love to have a variety of veg recipes. The only thing I did differently was to omit the water chestnuts - just a personal preference - added more celery instead. Even my husband who isn't a big veggie fan liked it. It would make a nice side dish for Thanksgiving. Thanks for this recipe - I'll make it often.

Loved this one! I used leftover tortilla chips that I keep in the fridge instead of the ritz crackers. Other than that, I followed it exactly and we inhaled it! Thanks!

My non-celery eating family actually enjoyed this. The consensus is that it tastes a lot like stuffing.
