Cheesy Vegetable Rice Casserole

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by Netanya

My husband was craving something "cheesy and vegetable-y" so we threw some stuff in a pan and ended up with this. It turned out to be the most cheesy, creamy casserole I've ever had and it was fantastic. This is definitely a staple in our home now. We've done a version with just vegetables and a version with chicken.

I found this to be really good!I loved the fact that you culd make with whatever veggies that you wanted to.I used the brown Minute rice.I also used the 2% Velveeta for part of the cheese then I used the mexican for the rest.Just to give it a little kick.To cut down on some of the fat I used the light sour cream and the fat free milk.I thiught that it turned out great!I will make this one alot more!Thanks for a new favorite!
