Spanish Rice Casserole

This is an old family staple, sure to please the children, and easy to prepare with pantry ingredients. Add a simple salad, perhaps some corn bread or biscuits, and a mid-week rush meal is a real success. It's a perfect starting menu for children to prepare by themselves.


Preheat oven to 400°F. Open can of tuna, and drain oil into large pyrex casserole. Put onion and garlic in casserole, cover, and microwave on high for 3 minutes. Add rice, spices, tomatoes, tuna, and water. Cover, and microwave, 5 minutes on high, 20 minutes on low. Stir well, sprinkle bread crumbs and cheese on top, and bake at 400°F. for 30 minutes. Serves 5.
