California Casserole

This is one of the recipes Stacy got in the recipe exchange at her temp job in college. It's filling and delicious and has lots of room for improvisation. --Mark


4 cups cooked rice
1/4 cup butter
1 cup chopped onion
2 cups sour cream
1 cup cottage cheese
1 large bay leaf
1/2 tsp salt
1/8 tsp black pepper
3 cans green chilies (4 oz.), drained
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated


Preheat oven to 375. Saute onion in butter until golden. Remove from heat and stir in rice, sour cream, cottage cheese, bay leaf, salt, and pepper. Lightly mix. Layer 1/2 the rice mixture in buttered baking dish. Sprinkle with 1/2 the chilies and cheddar cheese. Repeat. Bake 30 minutes. Sprinkle with parsley.
