Someone gave this recipe to me when I had small babies and it was such a good easy recipe, I've used it a lot through the years. Everyone says it's the best they've ever eaten. This also freezes well.

This was a very good and easy recipe and freezes well!! I made the recipe as is except I left out the pimentos. I did not like the bread crumbs on top...they tasted funny to me but that could have been the brand I was using. Will def make again!

This was really good! I am trying to watch my calories so I had to use fat free or low fat ingredients for almost everything, but I bet it is even better with regular ingredients. ;)
