This is such a delicious, eash, and homely dish. My mama's signature dish. I just jotted down the ingredients last week when I stayed with the folks. She told me it's absurd to write down such a simple recipe, but I konw I must share this dish with the 'zaar fans!

How dare you call something this delicious absurd!!!! I made this for dinner last night, just added a little mozzerella cheese to the Parmesan and a dusting of paprika. I'm going to make this again and again, but next time I'll double the recipe! Thanks for a new family favorite!

Marvelous veggies!! I cut the recipe in half with no problem, and added 2 T more parmesan, love that stuff! Added a few sprinkles of red pepper flakes and 1/2 cup shredded swiss cheese to the top. Baked for 40 minutes. Wonderful!!

Elizabeth, this was definately not absurd, it was wonderful!! Cut it back for the two of us and it turned out great, very very tastey and went really well with Bergy's mustard chicken. didn't change a thing. Thanks for sharing, one we will do again and again.
