"I would rate this recipe as a 5* recipe! I tested this recipe on 11/4/14. I found that it's a great way to use everyday staples such as rice, frozen spinach, cheese, and I added leftover cooked baby carrots and cooked asparagus, cut in pieces plus about 1/2 to 2/3 cup cooked chicken, cut in cubes. I had made adjustments to this recipe by using a 10-3/4-oz. can of golden mushroom soup in place of the milk and I kept the amount of cheese the same.

I used 1 onion, finely chopped and I'd used a package (10-oz.) of spinach which already was prepared. I baked the casserole for 35 minutes at 350o F. I just used 1/4 tsp. ground pepper and omitted the butter and salt since I'd used that to cook the long-grain brown rice.
