This past Sunday, I was thinking about side dishes, brown rice and whole grains. This lead me to start thinking about rice side dishes and then lead me to think about cheese. I started poking around and stumbled upon on a cheesy casserole recipe.
I adapted it and then ate half of the dish all by myself. Then I realized that this can easily be a main dish recipe.
Feel free to toss some chicken in there or any leftover protein really. Dig in!
