"An old-fashioned dish that is our family's favorite casserole. If you like cream cheese and green onions, you'll like this. From Aunt Gladys, who lived in Roswell, back before all that Area 51 hullabaloo."

Tips & Variations

No special items needed.


wonderful comfort dish that is open to adaptations. The changes I made was using the egg noodles I had which I know is less than 8 oz - added 1/2 pkg of frozen peas to the noodles. I used 4 oz of chiles and I used light sour cream and cream cheese. I also used parmesan cheese for the cheese. Even with all these changes this was a wonderful comfort food dish! Thanks for sharing!
