I ate yuca before with mojo de ajo and it's great. I will try this recipe it sounds real good and easy to make, i am sure it will taste as good as it sounds. I love casseroles. Thanks for this recipe


Sounds very good and easy to make. Thank you for the great idea.


This was awesome! I substituted my favorite mozzarella cheese for the parmesan and it worked wonderfully.


Delicious!! Very easy to make! Everyone will LOVE this delicious, satisfying mael.


This recipe was my first introduction to cooking with yucca. I enjoy baking casseroles and was glad to receive ideas from Santo Domingo.
