    Made this just as directed only doubled the pepper. Was very good and will make again.

    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!

    Absolutely delish!!! My grown boys that don't do 'low fat' anything, never knew and loved it!!

    This recipe is delicious!!! Thanks gingerbear!!! I couldn't find the jar of low fat American cheese either so I used 1 pack of 2% shredded cheddar cheese (1/2 pack sharp and 1/2 pack mild cheese) . Thus, it was not as healthy. My family absolutely love it!

    This went over well at dinner the other night. Everyone really enjoyed it and there was a dish left over to freeze for later. I will hold on to this recipe to make it again.

    Made this tonight for dinner and it was phenomenal! We used Velveeta in place of the American cheese (not low fat because I sent the boyfriend to the store :) and added chopped carrots in with the celery and onions. I used 1 can of cream of celery and 1 can of cream of chicken. Very easy to prepare and I will definitely be making this again in the future.


Me and my boyfriend have been together for 11 years now. We live on 40 acres and have 6 dogs and 4 Tennessee Walkers. We both work a lot of hours so there is never enough time in a day to get everything done. I absolutely love the outdoors. I also enjoy lifting weights, reading and playing with all of my beautiful animals. I absolutely love, love and love to cook. I like to cook a variety of things and also like love to bake. I like to just get in the kitchen and experiment with different things. If something does not turn out for me such as pie crust or gravy I will keep trying until I can make it work. Only problem is, when I finally make it work it may not work again the time after that. It is fun though and I do consider myself a pretty good cook for the most part. I also love slow cooker recipes. Those are my most favorite in the winter months.
