1 C. hot water
1/2 t. salt

    I think I have finally found the recipe I’v wanted for years! After church on Sunday, we would have a carry-in lunch. I remember loving a certain recipe that was always on the table! I knew it had rice, peas, and was a tomato based casserole. Years later after all those wonderful cooks have passed away, I kept asking people if they had any idea what I was talking about. NO one could figure it out.
    Scrolling through pinterest, I saw this picture and new it had to be it! It looks exactly as I remember. I am making this today! I hope I have found this favorite memory from childhood.

    I hope it’s the recipe you’ve been looking for! I understand completely
    because I’ve been in search for a cookie recipe that my grandma used to
    make. No one has it and I’ve tried at least 15 recipes that I thought
    “might be it” but I’m still searching.
