Spinach, Rice and Ham Casserole

My son, Glen, called me this week to request this easy recipe. It's a GREAT recipe for young children, because it doesn't look like there's "rice confetti" everywhere after they eat it. I usually buy one of those packaged ham slices at the grocery store to make this. You'll have dinner on the table in no time!

Spinach, Rice and  Ham Casserole

8 ounces processed cheese (Velveeta), cubed
1/2 cup 2% milk
3 cups cooked rice (instant or regular)
2 cups cubed fully cooked ham
1 package (10 ounces) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine the cheese and milk. Microwave, uncovered, on high for 1-1/2 minutes or until cheese is melted; stir until smooth. Stir in the rice, ham and spinach. Transfer to a greased 1-1/2-qt. baking dish. Cover and bake at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until heated through OR Transfer to microwave-safe 1-1/2 qt. baking dish and cook at 80% power for 5-9 minutes or until heated through.

 Yield: 3-4 servings.
