Previous Entry Share Next Entry
This is from a coworker, Karen - who is THE coworker, so far as cooking goes. No clue where she got it. It tastes good, and it strikes me as very very modifiable.

Mike made this, and topped it with fresh grated Parmesan. Ahh, the power of cheese. :)

Cheesy Wild Rice Casserole
6 oz package long grain and wild rice mix (e.g. Uncle Ben's)
4 oz can mushrooms, sliced and drained
2 1/2 c water
10 oz package frozen chopped spinach
3/4 c onions, chopped
1 tbsp butter
2 tsp prepared mustard
1/4 tsp nutmeg, ground
8 oz cream cheese, cut into cubes

In a 2 qt casserole, combine rice mix and seasoning packet with mushrooms. In a medium saucepan, combine water, spinach, onion, butter, mustard and nutmeg. Bring to a boil; remove from heat, stir and pour over rice mixture. Stir in cream cheese. Bake, covered, in a 375 degree oven 20 min. Stir mixture. Bake, covered, 15-20 minutes longer (or until rice is tender). Stir again. Let stand 5 minutes before serving. Serves 8.
