I've gotten hold of my mother's hoard of clipped and written recipes, and although our cooking has changed enormously from the 1940's and '50's to now, I do pick up some jewels here and there! This is one of those dishes which kids will love. It's easy and nutritious, and although I did not test it again, it seems to me it will work just fine. Mom is 90 and will be 91 in January. They did not always bother about exact ingredients then, although this recipe sounded fairly accurate. I'm sure you can make a white sauce by eyeballing some ingredients ...
