Yummy! I made this with what I had on hand. I used spicy sausage, a green bell pepper and a 4 oz can of mushrooms. I didn't have marjoram since I didn't have any. I would definitely suggest using low sodium chicken stock. I used regular stock and the dish was a bit too salty even for me who adds salt to everything at the table. I will be making this again.

Very nice flavor but I wasn't sure what to serve it with. I made a salad but somehow it felt like something was missing, like it should go over something, but it already had rice in it. What did others serve it with?

I make this all the time! My 10 year old loves it. Use sharp cheddar cheese. It gives it more flavor.

I used 2 cups brown rice and a tablespoon of chicken base instead of the long grain and wild rice mix. Also added shreded pepperjack instead of cheddar. Even with doubling the recipe, there was only a plate full leftover from a family of 4. Needless to say was well recieved by all. I'm suprised Campbells didn't suggest cheddar cheese soup for the last ingredient.

This is a great recipe. I was looking for something to make out of a tube of pork sausage, and I'm glad I found this, as it will become a favorite. I did not put in the thyme or marjoram, because those are not spices I keep on hand. It certainly had plenty of flavor without. Everyone had second helpings.

This was a wonderful meal! As another member said i used pepper jack cheese and it was amazing! I did not use any mushrooms because i did not have any. However the meal turned out wonderful!

Very tasty! The only substitution I made was using a box of rice pilaf mix instead of the white and wild rice, since that was all I had on hand. It was very good. The casserole was a little salty, though, which is odd since there is no added salt. Still, I'd definitely try this one again.

My favorite casserole; I've been cooking a variation of this for over 15 years! If you want to cut down on the sodium, don't use the rice seasoning packet and use water instead of broth/stock. As long as you use the thyme and marjoram called for there should be good flavor without as much salt. I usually double the marjoram since it is my favorite spice after garlic. Additonally, you can just cook all of the vegetables along with the sausage and cut down on an unnecessary extra step.
