Mushroom - Rice Bake

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by Theresa P

I found this recipe in an old cook book I have. It looks really good and I wanted to post it here to share. I have not made this recipe yet, but I am going to try it out real soon! My DH LOVES rice and mushrooms both, so it looks like the perfect dish for my family! Besides, anything with cream cheese in it can't be BAD, right?

Quite tasty! Sort of a savory rice pudding, with a creamy, cheesy flavor and lots of mushrooms. I used light cream cheese and fat free evaporated milk with good results. Not the most attractive, possibly due to the FF evap milk, but still a nice side dish with dinner. Thanks, Theresa, for sharing the recipe!
