Recipe by Andrea
"Excellent way to sneak in veggies. Use fresh or frozen spinach. Also good with one package of chopped broccoli instead of the spinach."

2 1/2 cups
1 1/4 cups
uncooked white rice
1 (10 ounce) package
1 (12 fluid ounce) can
shredded Cheddar cheese
This was very easy to make and tasted great. I used milk + margarine instead of evaporated milk. I also added some garlic powder and italian seasonings for flavor. Didn't have enough shredded cheese so I used a little parmesan. It turned out great! I did have to cook it for a little longer than the recipe called for.
First off, this should really be called Spinach Rice Casserole as it is a lot like a fave of mine, Broccoli Rice Casserole. Like others, I actually expected green rice for some reason. Definitely needs a good dose of pepper and don't forget the extra cheese. May try again with regular milk instead of evaporated as it wasn't that creamy and maybe add some butter. Oh, and the directions were kinda skimpy.
My husband despises spinach, but he LOVES this dish. The first time I made it, he turned down a second helping of meat so he could have extra green rice! Like others, I added garlic powder, mixed herbs/italian seasoning, salt and pepper and doubled the amount of cheese. I also substituted regular milk + butter for the evaporated milk.
This is GREAT! No complaints.Very rich tasting, creamy, not over powered by spinach either. Mine did not turn out one bit dry. I used freash spinach. Cooked spinach in chicken broth instead of plain water. It's a keeper!
This was a fantastic recipe. It did need some salt and pepper, and in my opinion, the one cup of cheese wasn't enough - next time I'll double it. This will be added to my regular rotation!
YUM! I used liquid milk instead of the evaporated (but still 12 oz) and it turned out splendidly! I also added some bits of American cheese along with the cheddar, and extra cheddar cheese. This was delicious!
I used frozen chopped spinach which I thawed for this recipe, since it was quicker. I would suggest topping this with a butter and bread crumb mixture to make a nice crust.
This recipe was good, but I didn't really like the spinach. I think next time I make it, I'll omit the spinach and just use broccoli. Maybe I'll add some more cheese too... it tasted kind of bland to me. My parents loved it though. I guess when you get older, you learn to like more stuff. The recipe was really easy. Thanks!
