We could make a meal just from this yummy casserole! We aren't veggie-sauruses, but this is so good you just can't believe it. You could always add some grilled chicken.

This is a great adaptable recipe, I used white rice & added capsicum & mushrooms to the mix of veggies, just used traditional pasta sauce, topped with grated tasty cheese, & it was great. A simple yet tasty side that can easily be made ahead of time & reheated. Fantastic, thanks!

Yumm! This turned out really tasty and it is so easy to make as well. What else could I ask for? I made some minor changes, such as using mixed grains rather than plain rice and used a home-made sauce I happened to have on hand in the freezer. This simple recipe can be played around with, I'm sure, and I am so happy to have this in our rotation. Thank you for posting it and for suggesting it to me in one of the forums!
