Delicious!! I used Italian seasoned diced tomatoes and it was a big hit. Will definately make again!!

Delicious! The only reason I had made this recipe was because I had all the ingredients on hand. The only change I made was to dissolve 1/2 cup corn starch in liquid and add to mixture before baking. Hearty!
