I posted the 1st Vegetable and Rice Casserole a few days ago, but I found this one in my recipe box (the little one with the 4x6" file cards. I don't have a clue where I got it, but I had already made it my own. In the olden days artichokes were a specialty item. Most people didn't have a clue what to do with them. I was willing to try them and now I add them to salads, pasta dishes ...and... rice casseroles!
