Cheesy Quinoa Casserole

Submitted by: DAWN1801

Introduction

This grain, Quinoa is found usually in health food sections of the grocery store. It has a great texture and is very good for you. They say you can use this grain in place of brown or white rice.

My family loved this recipe and so did my SIL who is really a picky eater. They never new it was good for you.
