This was one of the other recipes I wanted to try for my Secret Recipe Club post this month, but I chose the Tuna Enchiladas, which I happen to have made for dinner again tonight. Only this time I used a can of salmon instead of the tuna. So good! My SRC recipes often become favorites around here.
I made this casserole a week or so ago, and I see why Cathleen called it her new favorite casserole. It is excellent! I'd tried quinoa a time or two in the past, but I hadn't really been impressed. But this? This casserole makes me love it. There's just something about the texture of the quinoa and all the flavors. Everything goes together so well. You should definitely try this. Soon.
I recently got a gorgeous ceramic nonstick pan that worked perfectly for this. I figured why use a separate baking dish if I don't have to? Fewer dishes, right? Even though I really don't mind washing dishes...
I will definitely be making this again. I'm now wondering how it would turn out to mix everything up and put it all in the crockpot instead of baking it. I'm thinking of using some chopped cooked chicken and just mixing in a 16-oz. bag of frozen chopped broccoli, and then letting it all cook together. I think it would be great for a potluck.
