RECIPE BACKSTORY
My dear friend brought this casserole to my husband and I when I was down with my Rheumatoid Arthritis, she brought salad, a loaf of bread and dessert along with this delicious casserole. She always includes the recipe! It is simple and very good. Great for taking to a potluck for a dish to pass.
