Combine sour cream, milk, water, salt and 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 degrees F for 1 hour and 10 minutes. Uncover and sprinkle with Toppings; bake 10 more minutes.
Invent your own one-dish combinations, switching ingredients for variety. Each casserole bakes 1 hour and 20 minutes, eliminating the need to precook the pasta or rice. Experiment with different flavors and create family favorites.
