    Made this casserole for dinner tonight. Paired it with pork tenderloin. It was delicious. Will definitely make it again. I did add extra veggies.

    I preheated the oven to 425 degrees and sprayed the dish with non-stick cooking spray.

    I combined brown rice, mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, bell pepper, onion, salt, paprika, oregano and broth in a large Tupperware bowl and covered it with foil.

    I baked it in the preheated oven for 30 minutes but when I went to stir it, the plastic had melted.

    I ate the shredded cheddar cheese.

    I feel bad for Kim who ruined her Tupperware bowl. The instructions do say to cover the bowl with foil. It does not tell you to transfer the mixture to the 9 x13 prepared pan.

    One of the things I notice in your recipes is the lack to information about calories, etc., and portion size. In addition to being careful with what I’m eating because of diverticulitis, I also like to be cautious of portion sizes. Is it possible to get the information added?
