    45 minutes

    All the ingredients are combined together well before being placed in a baking dish, sometimes I vary the vegetables depending what is in the house.

    Veggies too crunchy even after I sauted prior to assembling. I had to make a lot of changes to this just to make it work. Should use a 11x7 inch dish.  -  01 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Very nice. Easy to make and quite tasty. Reminds me of the diner version.  -  03 Jun 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This recipe was bland and flavorless. My husband said it was 'ok'. All I could taste was the red bell pepper. Definitely not worth the effort it takes to prepare.  -  25 Jan 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
