Fresh basil and spaghetti sauce add an Italian twist to this attractive dish.

Ingredients

1
package (2 3/4 ounces) instant simmer-and-serve wild rice
1
package (10 ounces) frozen chopped broccoli
1 1/3
cups water
1
tablespoon chopped fresh basil leaves or 1 teaspoon dried basil leaves
1/4
teaspoon salt
1
package (3 ounces) cream cheese, softened
2
tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1
cup spaghetti or marinara sauce

Directions

  • 1 Heat wild rice, broccoli, water, basil and salt to boiling in 2-quart saucepan, stirring occasionally to break up broccoli; reduce heat to low. Cover and simmer 6 to 7 minutes or until wild rice and broccoli are tender. Stir in cheeses until blended.
  • 2 Meanwhile, heat spaghetti sauce in 1-quart saucepan over medium heat until hot. Reduce heat to low; stir occasionally.
  • 3 Spray 10-ounce custard cup with cooking spray. To form timbales, press 3/4 cup wild rice mixture into cup; turn upside down onto serving plate to unmold. Repeat with remaining mixture. Or spoon mixture onto serving plates instead of shaping into timbales.
  • 4 Pour spaghetti sauce over timbales. Sprinkle with additional Parmesan cheese if desired.

Expert Tips

Timbale can refer to one of two things: the drum-shaped mold used to form a variety of dishes or the baked dish itself.

Use 2 cups of cooked wild rice in place of the instant simmer-and-serve wild rice.
