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.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  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.

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!
