This one-pan recipe is the casserole version of spanakopita! It's hearty enough to enjoy as a vegetarian lunch or dinner, yet versatile enough to serve alongside just about any protein. To make it extra creamy, top each serving with a dollop of sour cream.

The step for adding the lemon zest was missing...I added it to the whisked egg mix before adding that to the rice mix. My significant other loved it and had seconds. Read More
