Recipe by Diana Thompson

This is a creamy, cheesy, vegetarian version of Spanish rice...a great side dish! The recipe was given to me by a friend.

THis may not be a true "Spanish" rice, but who cares, it tastes great. We will definitely keep this recipe and sometime will probably add ground beef or chicken and turn it into a main dish casserole. Thanks for posting, it's a nice change of pace.
