Recipe by Caryn Caldwell

A quick, easy, savory casserole. My grandmother always made this, and I loved it! I highly recommend making sure one or both cans of soup is low sodium, or it ends up tasting pretty salty, although you may prefer a higher sodium content. I also prefer to use ground turkey instead of beef; with all the other ingredients, it's impossible to tell the difference in taste.

This is a great dish! My family loved it (and with two picky boys that's saying a lot) and it tasted yummy the next day too! I used mozzarella cheese instead of Velveeta and it was delicious. :)Robin
