 Combine 1 (8-ounce) container sour cream, 1 cup milk, 1 cup water, 1
 teaspoon salt, and 1 teaspoon pepper with Sauce Maker (omit sour cream
 and milk when using tomatoes). Stir in Vegetable, Pasta/Rice,
 Meat/Fish/Poultry, and, if desired, Extras. Spoon into a lightly
 greased 13- x 9-inch baking dish.
 
 Bake, covered, at 350? for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle
 with Toppings; bake 10 more minutes. Makes 6 servings.
 
 Invent your own one-dish combinations, switching ingredients for
 variety. We stirred together the following mixtures and liked the easy
 preparation. Each casserole bakes 1 hour and 20 minutes, eliminating
 the need to precook the pasta or rice. But don't limit yourself to
 these taste-tested recipes -- experiment with different flavors and
 create family favorites.
