Rice & Beans with Cheese

My dad is a good old Southern boy so, red beans & rice have always been on our dinner table.  This is a little bit different but a similar idea.  It's a little more calorie heavy than I usually like but, there's a lot of protein so this would seem to be a much more filling meal.

Recipe from Better Homes & Gardens.
Yields 6 servings.
282 calories per serving.

1 1/3 c water
2/3 c brown rice
1/2 c scallions, sliced
1/4 tsp salt
15 oz can pinto beans
1 c low-fat cottage cheese
8 oz plain yogurt
1/2 c low-fat cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 350.

In a large saucepan combine water, rice, scallions, & salt.
Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, & let simmer for 15 minutes.

Stir in pinto beans, cottage cheese, & yogurt.

Pour into a baking dish.
Cover & bake for 25 minutes.
Uncover, sprinkle with cheddar cheese, & bake for 5 more minutes.
