This recipe was a trip down memory lane....Did a search for just these ingredients, knowing that this is how my mother used to put together something she make when I was young. Probably 40 plus years ago. The recipe looks exact, except she used ground beef. I had to cook another 15 mintues because it still had liquid in it and the rice needed to cook longer. Next time I will proably cook at 375 degrees. Thanks for sharing!
