We pack extra vegetables into this cheesy baked rice casserole. Plus we substitute brown rice for white, reduce the cheese by half and swap turkey sausage for pork sausage. If you're bringing it to a potluck, plan to reheat it before serving.

Loved it!

I have to admit, when I was making this I thought there would be no way this could taste good together. Boy, was I wrong! It was excellent and a great way to get rid of my overload of zucchini from the garden. Yes, it was a little time consuming, but nothing too crazy. We will be having this again for sure!

Tastes great, feels like you're cheating
Simple, Hearty, and Delicious

Hearty, Comfort-food type dish
With fresh squash in season it is nice to fix it different ways.

This can be a very versitle dish, with melon or spinish salad as a main dish, or it could be a side dish. It would be a welcomed guest at any potluck dinner, or the new star at the holidays. Use your imagination, and see what happens.

It can be modified to be vegetarian without loosing its great taste.
Love It

I've made this three times already. We love it and it's very easy to make. Chop a few vegies, brown some sausage and add some rice. Yummm

I didn't change anything and loved it. Next time I will divide it in half, and cook one and save the other as directed. This will serve a lot of people.

Time not that bad. Once you get the rice and veggies in the oven there is plenty of time to make the cheese sauce and cook the sausage. I had to cook the rice for an hour.
