From the Test Kitchen

Test Kitchen Tip:

This rice dish tastes just as creamy when you make it with reduced-fat cream cheese (Neufchatel). And the casserole can be assembled ahead and refrigerated for up to 2 hours before baking. Add a few extra minutes to the baking time to heat the casserole through.
