A casserole that's fairly mild, but sneaks up on you. I modified a recipe here that had too much fat/salt for us. A personal bias, I hate throwing out the end of packages of food and the directions for this dish reflect that. Also, I like lots of salt, DH lots of pepper, so I don't cook with them. Preparation time includes cooking the rice. If you have 2-3C of cooked rice, the time will be cut in half!
