This dish is one of my favorite sides. Rice in a creamy cheese sauce with broccoli . It goes with everything and is great for family dinners and to take to pot lucks or other gatherings.
Not only is this side dish delicious - it is easy to make. You cook some rice (I cooked mine in my Rice cooker). Mix the rice with some cheese, Cream of Mushroom soup, milk, pepper, and fresh broccoli. The broccoli rice mixture is spooned into a prepared baking dish. Bake the casserole for 30-35 minutes. Remove from oven and serve.
