    Ms. Kilroy's Note:

    I started making rice casseroles to bring to potluck lunches at my theater company because I discovered that they were cheaper than pasta (at least where I live). This recipe came to my mind when I had lunch at a Macau restaurant that served Portuguese baked rice. In the coming few weeks I began to dream about this brand new colourful, juicy rice casserole... so I did some research, hit the supermarket, and got busy.
