I used spinach instead of broccoli and added orange & yellow bell peppers to the onions. I also added salt, pepper and a dash of garlic powder. It was very good-I can picture adding cooked chicken to it for an entree.

Giving the recipe as it stands 2 stars - Giving what I did with the leftovers 4 stars. Made this recipe 3 nights ago and my husband and I thought it was rather bland. my family ate maybe a 1/3 of it and I wanted to use up what was still left. Last night i added in 1 cup sharp cheddar, salt & pepper, 1 cup cooked chicken and a 1/2 a can french fried onions. It came out great. I will make it again with the additions I made.

We all really enjoyed this. Yes, it needed a bit of salt but otherwise tasty. Next time I think I will put bullion in the water when I cook the rice to give it some flavor. I did put a sprinkle of cheese on the top.

Recipe was rather easy to make, however even though everyone said it was good, it was rather bland. I saw salt and pepper being passed around the table by every person. I'd make again but add something for a kick, cayenne pepper or chili powder. As is...was okay.

I liked this recipe. It works if you want a meatless meal (or even as a side dish to a meat-based meal). I used crushed plain rice crackers (instead of cheese-flavored snack crackers), but I could have left them out completely.

This was pretty bland to me, unfortunately. I only made a couple of changes - I used fresh broccoli since mine was about to go bad and I needed to use it. I just sauteed it (in olive oil, not butter) with the onions to get it nice and bright green before I tossed it in the casserole. I used brown rice and soy milk, also (although the Progresso can states that the product contains dairy.) Anyway, I sprinkled it with paprika for some color, but I just wound up picking out the broccoli, eating it, and leaving the rest. It definitely needs something to punch up the flavor. I doubt I'll be making this again, although it did come together fairly quickly which is a plus.
