This recipe is in the Moosewood Cookbook. The first 2 times I made it I fell in love. Then quite some time later, I made it again for guests and it was like glue. I, like another reviewer, felt like the breadcrumbs had gummed it up good. I think in future I will try it again and use only a few tablespoons of breadcrumbs to top the casserole with the cheese. I don't understand what I could have done either. However, don't give up on this casserole - it's delicious - just be aware that the breadcrumbs can mess it up for some reason.
