A baked cheesy casserole with a crumb topping over colorful vegetables. Great as a side dish with any meal. You can vary the veggies if you like. From Taste of Home magazine.

I make this all the time now, it's so good! I actually crush up french onion crackers to sprinkle on top - they give the casserole a nice flavour.
