My family really enjoys when I cook this easy casserole. The cheese provides the protein, but if you still want meat, choose bakes or grilled chicken or fish to keep your mealtime healthy.
1 (6 oz) pkg. fast-cooking long-grain wild rice
1 1/2 cups asparagus, cooked crisp/tender
1 (9 oz) pkg. frozen artichoke hearts, cooked according to package directions
3 oz fat-free cream cheese
3/4 oz shredded reduced fat mozzarella cheese
3/4 oz goat cheese, crumbled
1. Cook rice according to pkg. directions.
2. Mix rice, vegetables and cheeses.
3. Season with pepper.
4. Pour into casserole dish.
5. Bake covered in 350 degree oven until cheese is melted, about 30 minutes.
High in protein and calcium, and relatively low in fat, considering the cheeses added. Make sure you use low fat or fat free cheese, especially if having a meat serving with this meal. When it comes to women’s fitness choices, we all need a little variety of tastes. This casserole will satisfy your hunger and keep you satisfied until your next meal.
