Rice Vegetable Skillet

“This is a favorite vegetable casserole of ours," writes Arlene Lee of Holland, Manitoba. "It's very filling served over rice, and the cheese gives the veggies extra flavor. Great warmed up the next day if any is left!”

    I am so tired of being duped by hyped-up recipes! In order to cook long grain rice properly the veggies turned to mush. Flavor lacking
