Cheesy Rice Casserole

Recipe created by Jenn's Food Journey

2 cups cooked rice (I used basmati)
1 red pepper, chopped
1 small zucchini, chopped (optional)
2 garlic cloves, minced
6 Tablespoons condensed cheddar cheese soup
3 Tablespoons milk
hot sauce
shredded cheddar cheese (I used about 1/2 cup)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.  Spray a small baking dish with non stick cooking spray; set aside.  In a small bowl, add the soup, milk, and hot sauce, salt, and pepper all to taste.

In a small skillet, over medium heat, add the oil until hot.  Add the red pepper and cook for 3 minutes.  Add the zucchini and cook another 3 minutes.  Add the garlic and cook 1 more minute.  Remove from heat.

Place the rice in a large bowl and add the cooked veggies.  Pour the cheese mixture over and stir to combine.  Pour into prepared baking dish and top with shredded cheese.  Bake for 10 minutes or until heated through and the cheese on top is melted.  Enjoy!
