Cooking can be a daunting task, I know. It’s so much easier to pour yourself a bowl of cereal and maybe grab an apple and declare yourself fed but really, are you satisfied? I’m willing to bet you’re not. More nights than not, I skip out on making myself a hot, balanced meal simply because I’m too damn lazy. As a result, I end up picking at EVERYTHING in my kitchen but never end up feeling full. Don’t be like me. Learn to make some dishes, like this casserole! Hey, don’t recoil when I say “casserole.” I’m aware that the word brings to mind oven-safe dishes filled with various beige things and possibly green beans but this one from Smitten Kitchen isn’t anything like that. It starts with a base of wild rice and broccoli to which a generous cheese sauce is added. Packed into a cast iron skillet, topped with more cheese, and shoved under the broiler, this casserole is the kind that you take home to mom. Rich, attractive, and a good mix of health and indulgence, this dish is a keeper.
