ITALIAN CASSEROLE



Italian Casserole was introduced to our family years ago by my sisterinlaw Barb. 
If you're looking for a quick casserole with an Italian flair, this is definitely it and easy to make!
Add a side salad, and some garlic bread, bread sticks or as I chose to serve with garlic butter drenched rolls, and of course a great bottle of wine!  Mangia Mang'!

Hope you enjoy the recipe!
