    I have not made this recipe but it sounds exactly like a cassarole that my mother made years ago and it was very good. I have eaten plenty and it’s good for you.

    I have made this too, but I add either shredded mozarella or Swiss on top. Mmmmmmm.

    I found a similar recipe somewhere, and tryed it. It was tomatoes, Italian bread crumbs, and mozarella cheese. It was out of this world. Wish I could fine the exact recipe, but lost it.
