From Better Homes and Gardens, this is a great casserole, especially to feed a lot of people. It has a rich and creamy sauce, but works well using milk instead of cream too!

    This was really good! Used 2 onions, and my frozen spinach was very fine chopped, so the final product looked more like pesto. Will realize what spinach I have next time! The flavors all combined nicely. My sauce took a long time to thicken- longer than I would have liked to get dinner on the table in an hour. So I had to add a little cornstarch to speed it up. Next time I might add some cheese on top for a "casserole" feel. Thanks so much!

    Enjoyed this! Used one very large onion, doubled the garlic, and added some crushed red pepper for zip. Used all milk for the sauce and did not miss the cream at all. This is definitely going to be one of those recipes we double to freeze half for another day - very easy to put together and economical. Thanks for sharing! :)

    Used only 2 onions & no leeks but we still really enjoyed. I'm looking forward to the leftovers. Very tasty.

    Oh my gosh, I didn't realise I hadn't reviewed this yet, sorry! I made it a while ago and we very much enjoyed it, a simple and tasty pasta bake. I omitted ham, because I didnt have it, and added some chilli, because we like it. I separated the mixture into two small casseroles and froze one before baking it, tonight we are having the one I froze and I'm sure it's going to be great! I'll let you know......:wink:
