MURRAY, KY (KFVS) - This week's Heartland Cook grew up in Sikeston, but now calls Murray, Kentucky home. Ann Marie Bloemer has a couple of picky eaters in her household, so she's struggled to fix something nutritious but tasty for dinner that they'll eat. Lots of experimentation led to her Sausage, Spinach & Wild Rice Casserole, a dish her kids absolutely love. Plus, she says it's so easy to make – her teenage son fixes a pan of it all by himself at least once a week.
- 1 lb. Spicy sausage
- 3 slices deli Pepper Jack cheese
- 3 oz. cream cheese
- 1 cup fresh spinach leaves
- 2 cups wild rice (cooked)
- 2 chicken bouillon cubes
- ¼ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
