Broccoli Cheese Casserole

This is one of my favourites.

1 cup white rice
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1¾ cup water

1 lb broccoli, cut into small pieces
1 tablespoon olive oil
3 cups assorted shredded cheeses

2 tablespoons cream
1 tablespoon butter
1 cup shredded mozzarella

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine rice, olive oil, salt, pepper and water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and boil for 3 minutes. Reduce heat to low, cover and cook for 10 minutes. Allow rice to sit, covered, for an additional 5 minutes, then transfer to a large bowl.

Add broccoli, olive oil and cheese. Stir to combine. Bake for 30 minutes. Add cream, butter and mozzarella. Stir to combine, then bake, uncovered, until golden brown*. Serves 6.

*If you want to combine these steps to just bake once, go for it.
