Ham and Rice Cassarole

Hey Pampered Cooks! Today I made Ham and Rice Casserole. After Easter my fridge is STUFFED with leftovers so i thought what better way to get rid of some then by making a quick, easy, and freezable casserole! This recipe feeds 4 but can easily be doubled for a crowd or double the leftovers 8) As I am a Weight Watchers member I used their website to calculate the Smart Points for this recipe. A couple of points… First to double this recipe simply double all ingredients except the rice. Second add as much or as little ham and veggies as you like. I used up what I had on hand. If you use more ham make sure to dice it a little smaller. Also use whatever veggies and meat you like. This recipe is great with chicken and with mixed veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, and carrots. Green beans would be great too! If you want to freeze: Let broccoli or frozen veggies come to room temperature before mixing in. Mix all ingredients and place in a freezer and oven safe pan. To reheat place frozen casserole in 350 oven 20-30 minutes or until heated through. Here’s your recipe enjoy!
