I absolutely love this recipe. It's one that my mother got from her sister sometime in the '70s -- with two major differences. In our version, the onions are scallions, and the peanuts are cashews. I usually stick to fresh and natural, but this is real comfort food to me, regardless of all the canned ingredients. We love it so much that we've been known to double the recipe, and put the second casserole in the freezer, adding the nuts and chow mein noodles after we've thawed it and before we've cooked it.

We loved this and thought it was very different. I added mushrooms, peas and soy sauce (used cream of celery soup). Though I think the end product was just screaming for water chestnuts. Gave this 4 stars bc I think it needs the additional veggies, but my DH had no problem gobbling it up throughout the evening!
