A healthier version of a favorite, comfort food casserole.

With my Mom, I found 1-dish meals were easier for her to eat. I had to dig around and experiment to be able to cook up meals that were flavorful yet healthy. I didn’t worry about Mom’s weight, I had to worry about mine! Quick, tasty, and healthy are winners in my house!

This recipe is from a site that I get emails from. When healthy is in the subject line I always check them out!
