- 4 cups cooked rice, white or brown (I used white)
- 2 medium zucchini, sliced
- 1 red pepper, diced
- 1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
- 1 cup parmesan cheese
- 1 cup shredded reduced-fat mozzarella
- 1 tbsp fresh thyme
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Heat the olive oil in a pan on medium heat and add the zucchini and red pepper. Cook the vegetables for about 10 minutes, stirring often, until they are tender but still crisp. In a large bowl, add the cooked vegetables, rice, sour cream, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella, thyme and a dash of salt and pepper. Mix all the ingredients together and then pour the rice mixture into a greased baking dish. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese and the remaining 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella and then bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
