I made this and my kids loved it. I will make sure there are no Lima beans in my mix vegi's next time. It really warmed up nicely the next day. Loved it and kids are begging for me to make it again and soon.

I watched Patti make this and had such a hard time keeping my fingers out of it to taste. This is really, really good and when I got home I made some more for myself and added a few thins like garlic and black olives as well as some spinach. This is a exceptional recipe, thanks MR. FOOD!! Love the vegetarian recipes.

I'm making this for a vegetarian guest for Thanksgiving... I couldn't find Cream of Asparagus soup, so I'm going to use cream of onion soup and I'm also going to mix in some durkee onions. Hopefully that'll add more flavor, since the comments on here are mentioning it's bland. Hey, I'm trying to get as much done as possible so I'm not running around like and idiot tomorrow. Do you think I could assemble this ahead of time and then just pop it in the oven tomorrow?

This dish is so much better with onions & garlic cloves diced. I too add sliced mushrooms & Italian seasoning!

As it is, it's a bit bland. Adding grilled chicken, mushrooms, and a bit of garlic powder should improve it.

as is, not very good. very bland. could dr. it up, but then it would be a completely different recipe.

what type of dry italian dressing mix do you use?

Could add chicken or shrimp!

This is an excellent one dish meal, it's fast and easy to make and is really good. I did make some adjustments to the ingredients I happened to have on hand. I added one package of Holmes jalapeno sausage, sliced and cut in half. I used cream of celery instead of cream of asparagus, but I added one can of cut asparagus. I also mixed all the cheese in the dish and stirred it at the half way cooking point. The mixed veggies I used were not Italian, they were just corn, carrots and peas.
