Easy Veggie Bake

Comment on this recipe

"This is a festive-looking dish and since most people love cheese, it usually gets people to eat their 'veggies!'. I bring this often to our family gatherings."

Ingredients

1 package (16 ounces) frozen baby or crinkle-cut carrots
1 package (16 ounces) frozen cauliflower
1 package (16 ounces) frozen broccoli or green beans
16 ounces (1/2 large loaf) Velveeta cheese
1 can (10-3/4 ounces) cream of mushroom soup

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray the bottom and sides of a clear 9x13x1-1/2-inch glass baking dish with non-stick vegetable spray. Cook each of the packages of vegetables for 1/2 the recommended cooking time on the directions. Arrange each vegetable in long strips in the dish so that you have three 13-inch "rows." "I usually put the cauliflower in the middle so the white contrasts the two darker colors on each side." Melt Velveeta in microwave. Stir in soup and mix until smooth and creamy; pour evenly over vegetables. Cover dish with foil and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Then remove foil and continue baking for an additional 15 minutes or until slightly golden on top.
