This is the totally awesome casserole my mom used to make on special occasions. She gave me the original booklet a couple of years ago and it's delightfully retro, from the early 70's. When I went away to college, I copied it down by hand and took it with me. I've made some additions (the bits inside the brackets) that make it more of a meal-unto-itself rather than just a main dish. Now I make it for friends and gamers on special occasions. I've never made it in this small of a batch because the leftovers taste even better.
