Cheesy Brown Rice and Green Beans

This is one of those pantry dinners that ended up much better than I expected.  I started by making a simple cheese sauce.  It took less than 15 minutes, and all you really need is flour, milk, and cheese.  I seasoned mine with salt, pepper, and smoked paprika, but you can use anything you like.

Meanwhile, I steamed a 10 oz. bag of frozen green beans and boiled a bag of instant brown rice.  I tossed the green beans and rice in a bowl and mixed in some cheese sauce , then topped it with some freshly grated Parmesan.  I even had some cheese sauce leftover for another meal.  I can’t claim that this is an official ‘recipe’ but it was a decent dinner with leftovers for lunch, and that’s all that counts.
