This is a very economical casseroles, and now adays who isn't on a budget? ??LOLOL You can make it just with the cheese, or if you want to elaberate a little you can add in 2 cups of cooked shrimp. I'm not sure where the receipe came from, when I got married all of my friends got together and each one wrote their favourite receipe and placed in a hand make wooden receipe box, so would keep as a memory. I still have that little receipe box after 31 yrs and treasure it dearly.
