There is nothing like comfort food, especially when it is prepared by someone else. When someone is hurting, or even when they’re happy, it’s a special blessing when a friend offers to bring over dinner. This is my go-to casserole for sharing with friends. It is such tasty comfort food, with ingredients that almost everyone likes. It is easy to double the recipe for sharing — one for me, and one for you. It can be prepared and served right away, or frozen and saved to serve later. This recipe is adapted from one in a cookbook that I received as a bridal shower gift more than twenty years ago. It is a community cookbook published by a church in the town where I attended high school. Seeing the recipes in it is like visiting with old friends.
