Leftover vegetables make a casserole

See also

This week, I'm passing along recipes that can help with getting rid of the Easter leftovers. Hopefully, your refrigerator is beginning to clear out and you've been able to make good use of your leftovers! If you've got some mixed vegetables that you need to get rid of, I can help you with that right away.

We sometimes serve a plain vegetable when we have a meal. If you happen to have a few leftover vegetables, then here's the chance to combine them all into a "Vegetarian Casserole". Even if you don't have any leftover vegetables, two medium cans of mixed vegetables can be used. This is quite good and only takes minutes to make.

You start with the vegetables and you'll need about 4 cups of cooked, drained, cut-up vegetables. Any combination of cut vegetables can be used. The vegetables are combined with grated cheese, mayonnaise and chopped onion. This goes into a baking dish and is topped with Pepperidge Farm dressing, just as it comes from the bag. This goes into the oven and in 45 minutes, it's ready! It's a great way to disguise leftover vegetables!

As I mentioned, if you don't happen to have leftover vegetables on hand, two medium cans of mixed vegetables can be used in their place. One brand is "Veg-All", which is easily found in the stores. Drain these and use them in the recipe as directed. Even those who don't really care much for vegetables may find themselves liking them better once they try this.

The cheese called for in this recipe can be any cheese you like. I normally use sharp Cheddar, but again, if you have some leftover cheese that needs to be used, feel free to get creative and use it here. This will help you clear out the refrigerator even more!
