"Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things."
Philippians 4:8

Brocolli/ Rice and Cheese Casserole

When I was a young bride, I entered a magazine contest with this one, and I won first place!
I've been preparing it for over 35 years and they are still requesting it. I thought I would share it today:

Brocolli / Rice and Cheese Casserole

6 cps. minute rice or you could substitute with brown rice (that has been cooked)
4 cups brocolli
1 bunch of long green onions
1 large and 1 small can of cream of mushroom soup
5 cps. grated cheese
I season with Lawry's seasoned salt and some garlic salt (use your own preference.) I sometimes add Chicken or Tuna to this casserole. About 4 cps. of your preference

Minute rice according to package directions  (  let it sit)  until ready to use
dice the onions
grate the cheese
steam the broccoli, cool and chop into bite size pieces ( you may add the meat now if you prefer)
In a 9X13" pyrex or baking pan, place in layers as if making Lasagna:
1/2 of the rice
Mix both cans of soup together and then spread 1/2 of the soup like it is frosting, over the rice (conserve enough for 2 layers)
about 2 cups of the broccoli over the soup
1  1/2 cp. of cheese
1 1/2 cp. chicken or tuna (optional)
a handful of 1/2 of the onions
repeat the procedure again
top with remaining grated cheese

Preheat oven 350 degrees
Bake covered with foil for 15 min.
Uncover and bake 17 min. more, cool 10 min. and enjoy!
