As written, this recipe makes three 8x8 casserole dishes (the equivalent of three meals for a family of four). Our family of 7 typically eats two of the pans at dinner and saves one in the freezer for another time.
You can also prepare it in one 9x13 dish and one 8x8 dish, or in a single large roasting pan.
Make it easier by purchasing frozen pre-diced veggies from your freezer section!
