    This is an old recipe that I got out of my old Betty Crocker cookbook many moons ago. Mine are baked in a covered casserole dish and they are really good. I would like to try quinoa the next time I make them because I don't eat rice anymore. I'll let you know if it turns out. :) - 6/6/13

    Did the quinoa turn out? I might try it too.
