Broccoli- Rice & Chestnut Casserole Re-Mix

Rose Mary Mogan


This is a remix recipe created from left overs. I added in the water chestnuts to add a bit of crunch and texture. It was simple quick and easy to prepare. Steaming the broccoli and onions in the microwave saved time, and the dish came together in no time.

Just an idea the next time you have left overs in the fridge, with a few other added items you can have a delicious side in no time. It was very tasty.
