Broccoli Cheese & Rice Casserole

This is my version of the ever popular Broccoli-Cheese Casserole. Most recipes call for frozen chopped broccoli, this is where my recipe is different. I use fresh broccoli, which I cut up and steam or cook it with the onions for just a bit, until the broccoli turns a vibrant green.
