A favorite casserole of my family. Freezes well too.

Perfect hearty dish! I only had one can of cheese soup so used a can of cream of celery as well, turned out very good! I topped the casserole with about a cup of cheese for the last 5 minutes. Can't wait to see if it's as good out of the freezer!
