Delicious Discovery Casserole

Delicious Discovery Casserole
Here is a fantastic tasting, healthy dinner made with what was discovered in the pantry! This is super easy and has 4 ingredients, (counting water + 2 tbs of margarine). It is quick, and all done in one pan so clean up is easy.

However from the look, aroma, texture, and taste, one would think you had spent hours over the stove. Wink!
Honestly this is all that it takes!

1 pkg. “Rice a Roni” slave used the chicken flavor – lower sodium version.
1 pkg. Frozen mixed vegetables.
2 tbs margarine
2 cups water.
Start off following the package directions. Melt margarine in large covered skillet on medium high heat.

Pour in the rice & vermicelli mixture into the pan and stir. Continue to cook & stir until the pasta has started to turn brown. All you are doing is toasting it. Empty the contents of the seasoning envelope into the skillet and add 2 cups water. Stir to mix.

Once this has come to a boil, reduce heat to low, just a simmer, cover and let it go for about 12 minutes.

The frozen vegetables call for 6 minutes in the microwave – only give them 3! When the skillet's 12 minutes are up, stir in the vegetables, re-cover and let that continue to cook for another 6 – 8 minutes.

Slave used that time to pop some brown and serve rolls in the oven.

This casserole has such a great taste, it will be an effort to restrain your portion control. HOWEVER: even being a hog and only getting 4 servings out of this huge dish, It works out to 250 calories per serving (34 calories from fat).

Just like most of you, slave has once again dedicated a New Years Eve Resolution to losing weight. However, this is NOT a DIET, where good food is denied so that weight can be lost! This is a new path of life slave is discovering under the direction of Master.
Slave is learning to enjoy two meals a week as soups and one meal finding tastes other than meat. Now since this has “chicken flavoring”, purists would not call this a “vegetarian” meal. For the purposes outlined, I think it will work just fine.

What do you have to lose?
