“This is a recipe that I clipped from a magazine years ago, but unfortunately can't remember which one. It was a makeover version of a person's favorite high fat casserole into a reduced fat/calorie dish. My husband and I really enjoy this. I usually serve it with a salad or steamed vegetable for a complete dinner. (Note: Cooking time does not include time to cook brown rice.)”
