Very Good 4.8/5

I got this recipe from the Light & Tasty magazine - its a comforting casserole. I prepare the recipe into two baking dishes (4x9) and freeze one for another night. The nutritional info I recorded uses reduced-fat cream cheese and milk - you can make it with the fat-free that the recipe calls for and save some fat & calories.
