This was awesome! It made for a very comforting, healthy and yummy casserole that I enjoyed tremendously (yes, I ate the whole thing by myself, I have to admit it blushingly).
As thats what I had on hand I used corn and chickpeas instead of beans and lentils and I added some dried Italian herbs, garlic and chilli powder. This was quick and easy to put together just like promised and tasted super good while giving me loads of important nutrients and vitamins.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing another keeper with us, Dreamer!
