"Everyone loves the mild flavor and cheesy topping of this crowd-pleasing casserole," says LaVerne Schultz of Greenfield, Wisconsin. "I usually round out this hearty meal with a tossed salad or applesauce."

    I didn't think that this was anything special. I did change it up a bit. I used cream of mushroom soup rather than the cream of celery and 3/4 cup of sour cream plus 1/4 cup cream cheese rather than just straight sour cream. I didn't care for the oregano in the recipe. It just didn't taste like it belonged. I won't be making this again.

    Dee-lish. My husband just said... "I could eat that whole pot". I substituted also, I had some left over cooked white rice. I think next time I make this I may try swiss cheese... Yum.

    I substituted cream cheese for the sour cream (as I had no sour cream). And it was wonderful!!

    I made this last night. My husband said it could be a picture in a magazine. He loved it. He said to put it on the requested recipes list.

    This is just like a recipe I have called "Spinach Fandango" a family favorite. I have substituted sausage and it turns out great. Thank you for including this recipe.
