Yummy Vegetable Casserole that Kids Love

My family consists of picky eaters and I have to hide their vegetables in chocolate zucchini cake or conceal in cheese to get them to eat any nutritious foods.  So when I found one of my mother’s recipes for a cheesy vegetable casserole for adults I knew I could modify it and make it more appealing for kids.
