Where’s The Fish? #FishnVeggies

Every week I try to incorporate a new recipe into our menu. While I was grocery shopping at Wal-Mart I checked out Mrs. Paul’s Fish Tenders in the freezer section because I had a coupon for $1/1 Mrs. Pauls and wondered if my family would eat them or not. I figured it couldn’t be too bad with the right recipe.

The next day I told my kiddos we were having a surprise for dinner. I did not want to hear “yuck” or “gross” without them trying it.

All day my son kept bugging me about the  dinner surprise so  I finally told him that we were having fish. Other than tuna fish sandwiches we very rarely eat fish because cooking it intimidates me. While the kiddos were taking a nap I prepped the casserole, which thanks to a microwave, frozen veggies and pre-made fish tenders made it quick and easy, so that when hubby got home we could put it in the oven and spend family time together.

The house filled with a wonderful aroma.  As we began to eat, my son looks over to me and asked “Mommy, where’s the fish?”

That is when I knew I had a keeper! After dinner, I put the recipe in my binder so that I could make it again.

To make this super duper easy fish tender casserole you will need the following ingredients:
