Broccoli Casserole

This recipe really looks odd, but trust me, it was good! I got it from all

I did change some things, but I'll post the regular recipe and note my changes

1 cup uncooked white rice

5 tablespoons margarine (didn't measure this out)

1 cup chopped onions

1 cup chopped celery

1 (10 ounce) package chopped frozen broccoli, thawed and drained (I zapped mine in the microwave for a while to speed up the thawing process and to make sure the broccoli would be cooked through)

1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup (I used cream of celery because I hate mushrooms)

1 (8 ounce) jar processed cheese spread with jalapeno (my can was 9 ounces)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

In a saucepan bring 2 cups water to a boil. Add rice and stir. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 20 minutes.

Melt margarine in a medium skillet over medium heat. Saute onions and celery until tender.

In a 2 quart casserole dish combine onions, celery, cooked rice, broccoli, mushroom soup and processed cheese spread; mix well.

Bake in preheated oven for 35 minutes (I cooked it less than this because my broccoli was already warm)
