This produced a wonderfully filling, but meatless meal! My kids even asked for seconds! This casserole scores big thumbs-up in all areas: it's very colorful, has great texture, is easy and inexpensive to prepare, and the taste was excellent! One note, I do suggest serving this with salsa and sour cream alongside. Perfect taste combo! Thanks, Mirj for a tasty, economical meal that we all loved.

We were very pleased with this recipe, good flavor and pretty presentation. I used a red pepper instead of green, as I don't care for the green ones. Next time I don't think I would bother to layer the ingredients, I would just mix the rice, cheese, peppers and onion, the top with the milk mixture and then the breadcrumbs. I cut the recipe in half, to serve 3, and it only needed 20 minutes to cook. Made for ZWT5 by one of the Cooks with Dirty Faces.
