This is a favorite of mine every Thanksgiving and Christmas. It was always a sure fire way to get me to eat more veggies.

This was delicious and very rich. If using seasoned bread crumbs, you might want to use half the salt in the white sauce and omit the parsley in the crumb topping. I used 2 bags of prepared veggies which reduced preparation time to 15 minutes. The sauce would make good corn casserole too. Thanks for sharing.
