Do you think I did this right?

put the rice in the casserole dish uncooked. Do you think it will turn out? Doesn't seem like enough liquid to me.....

1 lb lean ground beef
1 small onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup ( used cream of chicken here)
6 medium zucchini, sliced and unpeeled ( I used shredded zuch)
1 cup Minute Rice
1 (16 ounce) container low fat cottage cheese
2 cups low-fat cheddar cheese, shredded

Place sliced zucchini in bottom of 9" x 13" pyrex baking dish.
Brown ground beef, garlic and onion in skillet.
Add cream of mushroom soup and oregano.
Mix well.
Pour this mixture over zucchini; sprinkle with rice; layer with cottage cheese then cheddar cheese.
Bake, loosely covered, at 350 degrees F for 45 minutes.

  • Ok, so I added about 1/2 cup of water..........DIDN"T NEED TO! Surprisingly it cooked just fine. Just remember to use the Instant or Minute rice. Pretty tasty! (Zuchinni is pretty watery and then w/ the cottage and soup, it did just fine)

  • i would have cooked the rice first. rice is already touchy to make, at least for me, so yeah i think the rice may be a little crunchy. hope it turns out good.

  • I always cook the rice first, or add extra liquid than what it calls for, it never cooks for me if I don't. I'd like to know if it works for you, though.

  • I agree with the PPs...I cook it or add extra water.

  • It's Minute Rice so I would think it would cook fine. I make a chicken rice dish that uses cream of mushroom soup and milk and I never cook the rice first (and it's regular rice). It just takes awhile to cook but the rice always comes out soft and yummy.
