Hearty Rice Dressing Recipe

At church socials and family reunions, this satisfying dressing has always been well received. It's a favorite with our family, too. I cut back on the recipe to serve a smaller group. -Ruth Hayward Lake Charles, Louisiana

"Hi bettyb2 - It probably wouldn't fit in one pan. The recipe makes three 9x13 casseroles.

"I haven't tried this yet. Why do you have to separate the soup mixture into three separate pots? Can't it be in one pot, then separated?"
