READY IN: 1hr 35mins
Recipe by Kittencalrecipezazz

I strongly recommend converted rice for this, I have used regular long grain white rice for this recipe and the texture of the cooked rice was too soft.

I made this dish for a side to lasagna and it was wonderful! It was very easy to make and the taste was great! I used the Ramano cheese and I think it really made it!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Set oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Butter a 13 x 9-inch baking pan.
  3. In a large bowl, combine ALL ingredients EXCEPT the cheddar, Romano OR Parmesan cheese and the whipping cream; mix well to combine all ingredients.
  4. Transfer to a prepared baking dish.
  5. Cover with foil, crimping the foil very tightly to edges of dish not to let any steam escape.
  6. Bake for 1 hour (stirring at the end of 30 minutes).
  7. Remove from oven and stir in the cheeses and the whipping cream.
  8. Return to oven; continue to bake for 10 minutes longer.
  9. Note: although I have never tryed it, I presume that half and half cream may be replaced for the whipping cream.
