Lovely, easy, healthy casserole and it makes a pretty, colorful presentaion looking like it took longer to fix - my kind of recipe. Thanks!
My b/f's sister served something like this at Easter and I just loved it. Unfortunately this didn't quite live up to my memory, but then I did alter it a bit. It keeps well, improves with sitting and is versatile. So 4 stars. I used fresh tomatoes as I had some that needed to be used and only half the cheese. I also doubled the rice as the mixture as stated didn't fill the casserole dish. That made enough for 9 serves. One night I added a couple of beaten eggs and fried it up. That was really nice. Very rambling review.... I will make again with canned tomatoes - needed more moisture than that just from fresh.
