Rushin' Casserole


"This recipe is adapted from one I found in a Georgian/Russian cookbook. The original recipe was more complex, and called for other ingredients like lamb -- which my family won't eat. This version is a big favorite in our home. The yogurt sauce can be as garlicky as your family likes. We usually go for lots, but we've had guests who like it with plain yogurt."

I couldn't eat more than a few bites of this, and you should have seen the hilarious "gross" faces our 16 month old twins made while spitting this out. However, my husband thought it was ok and...
