Easy Rice Bake Casserole

After making too much rice and having a bunch of spinach that needed to be used was the inspiration for this recipe. All I had to do was top it off with cheese and it was an instant hit.

Ingredients:
2 tablespoons butter, plus more for dish
2 cups fresh spinach
2 eggs
4 cups cooked rice
1 cups of parmesan cheese
1 cup of feta cheese
1 teaspoon salt free spice
1 cup of milk
1 tsp of parsley
1 tsp of thyme
1 tsp of basil
Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a large casserole dish.
In a large pan over medium-high heat, saute spinach with 2 tablespoons of butter. Set aside.
In a large bowl, whisk together milk and eggs
Add the cheese, rice, parsley, thyme, basil and spinach and combine well.
Season with salt and pepper.
Pour into prepared casserole dish and top with extra shredded cheese.
Bake for 30 minutes and serve piping hot.



Stay hungry my friend.
