Cheesy Broccoli and Rice Casserole

Cathy Gulley


I came up with this recipe because we love the Creamy Four Cheese Rice A Roni and I needed a side dish for last years Thanksgiving dinner at my Mom's. The flavor from the Rice A Roni is delicious and adding the broccoli,mushrooms and water chestnuts took it over the top! Makes a great addition to your holiday meal or any family gathering! Enjoy!
