"This recipe is so tasty, and one that my sister introduced me to... Goes GREAT with just about any meal, and especially with baked pork chops, chicken, or turkey. Our family loves this, and we have been making it for years... Great for Thanksgiving or Christmas too, in place of stuffing! NOTE: You can spoon this into little oblong aluminum pans, and freeze until ready to use."

This is an amazing casserole to have with baked chicken. It takes the place of stuffing, and is so delicious, you won't even miss it! Added some mashed potatoes, rolls and some roasted carrots, and we had a lovely Sunday dinner!

One bite and we were hooked! I used zukes and summer squash and it was surely enjoyed. This is a great summertime pot luck choice too, even when it's hot. Just cook it over indirect heat on your grill, until golden and bubbly. That's what I did!

Baked a chicken and made this to go with it. It was real delicious and we ate just about all of it in one sitting. Thumbs up from us!

I made a brined turkey breast and made this instead of regulars stuffing. So good even seconds didn't seem like enough!

With lots of zucchini left in my garden I made up several batches of this to freeze to have later this year. It freezes well and is so delicious. It goes really good with chicken, pork and beef. I can't wait to have it for Thanksgiving with turkey.
