We made this for thanksgiving dinner and it was AMAZING!! We couldn't wait for it to get to the table and those of us in the kitchen snacked on it before everyone else even knew dinner was ready. We made this with two changes: We used fresh veggies and just steamed them slightly before baking. We had to leave off the garlic salt due to a garlic allergy. DELICIOUS!! This is one of our new family favorites and a great offering for potlucks.
