    Makes a Great Main Dish

    Richard Davies from Belleville, MI

    We have made this several times, and usually use it as the main course and have a salad with it. I use fresh vegetables and leave out the boullion. Fresh adds some texture and you don't have to worry about adding water from the frozen veggies

    Great To make And Freeze

    Ronald Holst from San Antonio, TX

    this Is a good dish To make for one or two people divide it up after finish cooking in As many meals as you feel you can get from this . freeze it and take out the portion that you have frozen at another time heat and serve . this is great for that.

    "Gimmie" More

    Rachel Lewter from MADISON, AL

    OK, this is one of those recipes that you can make by the book, OR you add onion, cheese, meat, or spices and remake a whole new creation. My daughter and I (Girl Scouts) are always looking for something to feed ten people, and this one fits the bill. Thanks!!!

    A New Family Favorite!

    ann ferraro from Watertown, MA

    Great dish for supper or potlucks. Can make it into a one dish meal by adding chicken or whatever you have left over in fridge. I added some onion and cheddar and everyone wanted seconds so will have to double the recipe the next time.

    Potluck Hit

    Colleen Sheehy from Bound Brook, NJ

    Took this dish to a potluck luncheon for my mom's Senior's Club - a lot of excellent (and critical!) cooks. It got raves, and universal requests for the recipe (and the VBB website URL).

  •  Star(s)

    Good Recipe!!!!

    Mimi from Tallahassee, FL

    I added my little spin to this recipe and it was great! I added sautéd onions, garlic and bell pepper,pepper, salt, garlic powder and onion powder for more flavor. I also added parmesan cheese on top and used whole grain cracker crumbs instead of bread. This meal goes well with bake chicken. It's very healthy and light.

    Heartland Vegetable Bake

    Jeannine Gramstad from NEWBURGH, NY

    I tripled this batch because of the size of my family. I did add cheese & onion to jazz it up a little more, changing the nutritional info a bit. Everyone enjoyed & will keep to serve again

    Wonderful recipe!! Very Yummy

    Stephanie Griffith from Stanley, VA

    I made three minor adjustments to this recipe that I think makes all the difference. First, I add about 1/4cup of chopped onions. Second, when making the sauce I add a cup of fat free shredded cheese to the saucepan. It gives the sauce sooo much flavor. Also I like to add shredded cooked chicken (just one gently seasoned broiled breast). Making those three additions makes all the difference. This is a great recipe! I make it at least once a month.

    Never any left over

    Michelle Whitney from PASO ROBLES, CA

    This recipe is wonderful. I have made it a couple of times now and each time there is never anything left over. Even the people who don’t like veggies seem to enjoy this dish. The original recipe is great, but I usually make it with fresh steamed broccoli, cauliflower and carrots instead of the frozen. I also add a can of yellow or white corn and top it off with an 8oz package of sharp cheddar cheese. I even made it once with a bit of Cayenne pepper just to add a bit of kick. Whichever way you make it, it always turns out delicious!!

    I made this recipe for Dinner tonight and it was wonderful. I emailed it to my Daughters and Granddaughters as it very good, tasty and easy to make. All you had to add was your meat and bread for a well balanced meal. I also expected this to be two meals but my husband enjoyed it so much he went back for seconds. Thanks for this recipe.

    There were so many side dishes at Thanksgiving it really wasn't a good time to try something new. I made a point of trying this dish and enjoyed it. I plan to make again, and adding a little shreded chicken or turkey sounds like a winner.

    Judy Bailey from ALTAMONT, NY

    In todays busy world getting together with friends is even hard. So with a couple sets of friends we decided to split up the work of cooking. One brings sides, one brings the main course and the other dessert. This worked AWESOME as a side. It traveled very very well, its was delicious, and different. And you can put it together ahead of time, bake and even let sit a little bit. I highly recommend it for todays busy schedule.

    This recipe was very easy to make and my family loved it. It was great that you got your veggies and your starch in one dish. And it was very simple. Even my 13 year old daughter loved. Which is very strange since she is very finicky.

    DOUBLE THIS RECIPE!

    Sarah Bullock from Anchorage, AK

    This was a good tasting, easy-to-make dish! I recommend doubling it so that you can feed a family and still have leftovers. I am going to try adding cheese next time also, I kept missing cheese when I ate this! Very easy dish to make, and use for substitutions, etc.

    One of my sons is a vegetarian so I substituted 2 Maggi vegtable bouillon cubes for the chicken. It was fab. I have also tried it with other vegtables and it works very well. I will make this again.
