Low-Fat Broccoli, Rice And Cheese Casserole

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Top Review by Mika G.

This will be my new broccoli rice casserole from now on. So easy and the family went wild for it. I couldn't find low-fat American cheese so I used 2% Velveeta. Instead of transfering everything to a bowl after cooking the celery and onion, I just put everything in the same skillet and let the cheese melt in there over low heat. That way I got the cheese to melt and had one less bowl to wash. :) Thanks so much!
