Folks go back for seconds of this meal-in-one casserole with its down-home flavor, rich sauce and golden topping. I always bring home an empty dish. -Ruth Andrewson, Leavenworth, Washington

I wish I had read the reviews prior to making this recipe!!! I saw 4 1/2 stars and thought that rating would suffice. I think this recipe is very, very bland and totally lacks flavor. I even added one cup of shredded sharp cheddar cheese. I am very disappointed!

I followed the recipe per ingredients with the exception of making an additional cup of rice and used red pepper chopped instead of pimentos. I also did an additional 3/4 cup of cornflakes and 2 T of butter.

This recipe was good, but needs a little more moisture even though the rice is already cooked. :)
