This was a very quick, easy cassrole to make and that in its self warrsnts five stars. The only reason for not doing so was that this really needed help in the seasoning department, for me, that is. I test tasted before putting into oven and then added one tbls of my own seasoning mixture which has many varied things in it. The next time I also will put a hot chili in the milk to sit for a while in order to get more wallop. I must say that if the main people eating this are kids, then made the way directed will be perfect. Thanks Looney, this IS real comfort food!
