This is a delicious side dish that goes great with things like roast beef or chicken. You can make this for your weekend dinner, and if you like vegetarian dinner, it will go best with Shepherdess Pie, and of course for chicken lovers, Nixon Chicken Casserole will be the best option. You can also include Hawaiian Macaroni Salad for a Hawaiian touch in your special dinner with your family.
