This creamy and savory artichoke heart and mushroom casserole makes a terrific side dish for grilled chicken and steak.
I need to put more effort into the side dishes I serve my family. Getting them to eat their vegetables is tough enough, but when the energy I put into making them appealing is lacking – it’s even tougher.
This simple casserole recipe was easy to put together and toss in the oven. All I needed was a bag of frozen artichoke hearts, a package of mushrooms, a few pantry items, and a little imagination.
My extra effort paid off. This wasn’t just another side dish. When I served this vegetable packed casserole alongside my husband’s steak, it was the steak that was left on the plate this time!
