Looks very good and I miss making casseroles....can I use evaporated milk? Don't like non dairy stuff. What does that do to the numbers? Thanks. Dietitian comment: The evaporated milk is much higher in potassium and phosphorus so I do not recommend it. Try rice milk or almond milk. Check labels and ingredient lists and look for products without added phosphates or high potassium content.

This recipe sounds good and I would like to make it but I question all the additives in non-dairy creamer, particularly the phosphates. Dietitian comment: Yes, phosphate additives are taking over our food supply! If you feel like experimenting you could use almond milk or rice milk instead. I would also add 1-2 tablespoons of oil to replace some of the fat from the nondairy creamer. (Check brands and varieties of almond and rice milk and select a brand without added calcium-phosphates.)

I found only flavored liquid non-dairy creamer in the store. Can I use dry with water - if so, what would the proportions be? Dietitian comment: I suggest asking the store manager if they carry the unflavored non-dairy creamer. Since I have noit tried any of the recipes with dry ndc I am unsure if the recipe would work[INVALID]but you could give it a try.

I made this for a friend on dialysis. I thought it was good and easy to make. I replaced the bell peppers and mushrooms with mixed vegetables.

We love this casserole! I make it all of the time. I do add frozen colored bell peppers and the holy trinity...celery, onions and green bell peppers. I even make it for church suppers. Excellent dish!!!!!

Dear Moderator: I commented on this back in July 2012 and finally got around to making this dish again. Thanks for the changes to the recipe. It was great before, but even better now. Thanks.

I have not made this yet but am looking for new recipes to make my husband. I can add flavoring (that isn't a problem) but need to know if the non-dairy creamer is liquid or powder? Moderator: The nondairy creamer is liquid in all the recipes unless otherwise stated.

I made this dish for my family and they loved it. They told me to make it a regular. My daughter is on the renal diet. I try to cook the same food for the whole family and this fit just perfect.

This is a little bland, as several members mentioned. It is a good base that could be added to!

We thought it was on the bland side. Next time I'll use more spices. The sauce is great and easily modifiable to other hot dishes.

Very good, just a tiny bit bland. Will add Mrs Dash or garlic or oregano next time.
