Brown Rice Casserole

"As a new bride, I knew how to make scrambled eggs and bran muffins. Unfortunately, you can only live on love for so long. My dear husband held his tongue and ate the many flops that come with being a beginning cook. Many years later, I'm secure in the kitchen, and my family enjoys my cooking. This hearty dish even passes the test for teenage boys.--Glenda Schwartz, Morden, Manitoba"

This was so easy and delicious! I omitted the split peas b/c I didn't have any on hand, and used diced tomatoes with green chilies to spice it up a bit. A definite keeper! (I'm making it again...

Recipe as is is mushy and tasteless. Despite the negative reviews I made anyway, using the best and freshest ingredients available.

I had some split peas around and decided to use them up in this casserole. It's not a really traditional casserole, but it was okay. I added more garlic and onion, and also added chili powder be...
