Recently I am baking more casserole dishes. They are quick to make, and there are many possibilities. They can be meatless or with meat. If you have a delicious sauce on hand, I bet the casserole will be tasty. I usually buy my favorite sauces and then I decide what ingredients will go well together. I mostly prepare meatless casseroles but with meat, they are great too.

This easy broccoli casserole recipe didn’t take a lot of time to make. I used only a few ingredients. Broccoli, rice, kidney beans, mozzarella cheese and my favorite vodka sauce. I almost always keep vodka sauce on hand. It goes well with anything: rice, veggies or pasta. For this dish, I was thinking of using pasta but rice suited perfectly.

First, I cooked the rice and broccoli, so the ingredients incorporated very well while baking in the oven. The whole dish came out very tasty! With the perfect amount of cheese. The broccoli casserole takes about 1 hour. Which is not bad for the large dish. And it is perfect for the whole family! For the topping you can add some fresh vegetables like tomatoes, peppers or chive.
