Tasty, easy to put together and easy to cook because you can put it in the oven and forget about it for an hour or so. I needed more than an hour for the initial cooking time but that is probably just a function of my oven. This is a perfect choice for apres skate or ski. You could put the ingredients together ahead of time and put the casserole in the oven when you arrive back home It cooks while you entertain your guests. A salad, crusty bread and a nice bottle of wine and "instant dinner party".
