Expert Tips

Other rice mixes of a similar size can be used in this recipe, but be sure to look for fast-cooking mixes, which cook in less than 15 minutes.

You can jazz up this casserole by adding either 1/4 cup sliced almonds, 1/4 cup sweetened dried cranberries or a 4.5-ounce jar of sliced mushrooms, drained, with the rice mix.
