Treasures Deep in the Recipe Box

I was trying to figure out what to make for supper earlier this week and coming up with nothing, so I started going through one of my recipe boxes to see if anything sounded good. I came across a recipe I wrote done in either the late 1970s or early 1980s. My memory is shot, but I *think* it originally came from Lora. 

St. Paul's Casserole

  • 1 lb. sausage, browned and drained
  • 4 1/2 cups water
  • 1/2 cup raw rice (NOT instant)
  • 2 packages chicken noodle soup mix
  • 1 cup green pepper, diced
  • 1 cup onion, diced
  • 1 cup celery, diced
  • 1 4oz. can mushrooms, drained
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Boil the water, add rice and soup mixes, and boil another 7 minutes. Mix all ingredients together and put all in a greased casserole dish. Bake for 45 to 60 minutes.

This is super simple and super good. Chuck said, "I remember this; we haven't had it in decades. It's a keeper for sure!"

So, little ones, next time you're stuck for an idea for dinner, mine through your recipe might be pleasantly surprised by the gems you find in there!
