I seldom make casserole because I am a typical Asian, I love only Asian food.

Anyway, I love the cheese topping on top, what more after the baking process, it looks good.

So colorful and pretty! This would have been a great use for my leftover egg whites--instead I made boring scrambled egg whites.
