RECIPE BACKSTORY
It all started in 1996, I think, when I was in the 1st grade and that winter my mom broke her leg. At the time I was attending a private school which was connected to the church my family belonged to. The mothers of my class once they heard the news, all got together and came up with a dinner pool. Each night a family would either put together a meal and drop it off at our house every night. This is one of the casseroles that has now become a family staple. It is a one dish meal and if timed right can be made in less than a hour including prep. Enjoy!
