As you will see in this video, this Bocconcini and salmon casserole is so easy to prepare. Basmati rice, green beans, yellow bell peppers and melted Bocconcini cheese combined delicately with the flavour of the salmon to create a delicious weekday meal that’s ready in no time. Tempting, isn’t it?

In a deep skillet, melt butter and sauté onion, garlic, yellow bell pepper with oregano for 2 minutes. Add rice and stir. Pour in broth and vegetable juice and bring to a boil. Lower heat to simmer, cover and cook for 10 minutes.

Add green beans or broccoli, salmon and olives. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cover and cook on low heat 10 minutes more or until rice is cooked.

Slice Bocconcini with an egg slicer, garnish casserole with slices, cover and let melt. Serve once cheese has melted, or brown under the broiler, uncovered.

Tips

Cheese alternatives: Canadian Fresh Mozzarella, Mozzarella, Provolone.
