I made this for dinner tonight, and it was pretty tasty. I made a couple of substitutions, based partly on stuff that I had. I used cheese on top instead of the stuffing, like the note suggested, and I omitted the pimiento. I also used cream of chicken soup, instead of celery. I would make this recipe again. It's very filling! I might also try it with some asparagus in place of green beans next time.
