Decent flavor, super easy to put together, but I cooked it an extra 10 minutes and the rice was still not done. I think this needs to be covered in order for the rice to cook properly, and stirred halfway through. I added leftover roasted chicken to make it a complete meal.
Broccoli, Cheese, and Rice Casserole
Light Velveeta cheese, low fat milk, and reduced-fat cream of mushroom soup make this broccoli casserole rich and super creamy, yet still under 150 calories and 5 grams of fat per serving.
