Who doesn’t love a good comforting casserole recipe? Especially for the busy back to school season or the chilly winter months that are right around the corner.

Typically I make my casseroles with noodles. Not really sure why, just habit I suppose. But this creamy, cheesy wild rice casserole has me rethinking my entire casserole routine! This casserole also has Foster Farms Organic Ground Turkey, spinach and artichokes. {side note} I’m kind of obsessed with adding the spinach and artichoke combo to everything possible lately. So we’ve got cheese, rice, turkey, spinach and artichokes. That is one super satisfying and nutritious meal!

My daughter isn’t a fan of rice (except on her sushi rolls, go fig) and after eating this for dinner she immediately requested it in her school lunch the next day. This was during the recipe testing process so I assured her that she would get to eat this meal many, many more times. True Story.

While the spinach-artichoke combo is a guaranteed hit for me, I also loved the turkey in this dish. Foster Farms Organic Ground Turkey is 93% lean and 100% natural with no antibiotics, no GMOs and no added hormones or steroids. Ground turkey is a healthy, nutritious and lean source of protein. So really, this is a comforting casserole that you can make for your family and feel good about the ingredients.

Foster Farms turkeys are raised in California’s Central Valley . . . that’s a hop, skip and a jump away from me! The turkeys are raised free range on a certified organic vegetarian diet and always free of added hormones and steroids.

This meal comes together rather easily. You could even use quick-cook wild rice to make this meal come together quickly. And if you want to shave off a few extra minutes, feel free to skip the baking. Cook up everything on the pot, top with cheese and serve without baking. I prefer the golden cheese topping but some nights are so crazy busy that just getting a homemade meal on those plates is a success.

    First thought since I’m not a fan of artichokes (none in the can are organic) would be asparagus. Can’t take credit for it, googled artichoke substitutes. Will try!

  2. I always think casseroles have to have pasta too! I have to try this recipe, I really love the flavors!

  3. What a classic combo of flavors in a whole new way!! Awesome

  4. I have everything on hand to make for dinner!

  5. OMG! I have to make this for my family! It looks absolutely amazing!
