I was really looking forward to the tastes of this casserole and have to admit I was disappointed. Followed it to the letter and found that the lime juice was not distinguishable and the overall effect was very pineapple-y. Way too much "juice" after baking, too, giving it a wet effect. Sorry, just didn't work for me.
