Vegetable Pasta Casserole

“As I was preparing the 10th Anniversary Edition of this cookbook, I commented to my friend, Delandy, that my selection of vegetarian dishes was pretty pathetic. What can I can I say, we are carnivores. Anyway, she told me this recipe and I wrote it down to go in the cookbook. Very simple to make, and Delandy and her husband, Chris, both enjoy this.” – April Ferre
