Ingredients:  
1 c. brown (or white) rice, cooked
1/4-1/2 c. chopped onion
2-3 tsp. olive oil
1/4-1/2 c. milk, broth, cream soup, ricotta or yogurt
1/2 c. sliced water chestnuts
2 tbsp. sunflower seeds (optional)

1 (10oz.) box frozen chopped spinach, cooked and
squeezed dry
2 tbsp. grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 - 3/4 c. grated mozzarella cheese

Directions:
Directions:
Cook rice according to pkg. directions. (You should have 1 1/2-2 c.) Saute onion in oil until tender. Stir in remaining ingredients except you can save some of grated soft cheese for top if desired. Bake at 350º until hot about 30". This can easily change according to your taste by sautéing carrots and/or celery with onions, using chopped broccoli instead of spinach and using other cheeses, seasonings, etc.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
This is very quick and easy if you have leftover rice in the frig or freezer and/or leftover broccoli. I use brown rice and low fat cheeses to keep it healthy. When I mix it up I add the wet (broth, etc.) ingredient last as the amount of moisture in the rice and vegetables will vary. Add enough broth to make it a little juicy, it will dry out some as it bakes. Get creative!
