    Dull formulaic, recipes, many many rice "casseroles."

Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Tuna-noodle casserole

    • ccav on March 01, 2021

      Used German egg noodles, added scallions, sliced green onions (Manzanilla or garlic stuffed) to mixture before baking. Try panko or breadcrumb topping next time.

    • ccav on November 15, 2021

      Great with Panko crumbs, marinated mushrooms, sliced cheddar over top (sprinkle breadcrumbs over)

  • Turkey or chicken Tetrazzine

      This is a cute retro dish that turned out to be absolutely delicious. I made it pretty much per recipe, with rotisserie chicken, except for using panko on the top instead of more grated Parmesan. It is plenty cheesy without the cheese topping.

  • Chicken, ham, and rice casserole

    • anya_sf on July 14, 2021

      I used this recipe as more of a template to use up what I had: 8 oz mushrooms, a yellow onion (instead of green), red bell pepper, fresh herbs (dill, parsley, chives) instead of dried, only ham (no chicken), mix of gruyere and jack cheeses. It made a perfectly serviceable dinner. Surprisingly, the cheese wasn't that noticeable.

  • Spaghetti squash with vegetables

    • wkhull on November 08, 2019

      Not very flavorful. But has potential if you're good at doctoring up bland recipes.
