Cheesy Rice Casserole

Casseroles can be as easy or complex as you desire them to be, I love to come up with new casseroles they can be straight from scratch or we can use our leftovers.
We can put just about anything into a casserole from veggies, meat, rice or pasta to what ever you have on hand, be creative.

Here a simple, but very yummy rice base casserole.

Ready in: 45 Min (15m prep, 30m cook) | Serves: 6 - 8 | Complexity: Medium
