In a medium-size saucepan cook rice in 2 cups lightly salted water until cooked, about 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add onions, bay leaf, and rosemary leaves (discard the twig). Sauté until the onions are translucent for about 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
Stir in turkey and mushrooms and cook for 10 minutes. Discard bay leaf. Add wine and cooked and drained rice to the skillet and parsley. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
In a small bowl, mix together the cheeses. Put half of the rice mixture in a greased casserole dish. Sprinkle with 1 cup mixed cheese. Layer with the other half of the rice mixture. Top with the remaining cheese. Garnish with sliced tomatoes or halved cherry tomatoes, if desired.
Bake in 350 degrees Fahrenheit preheated oven for 20 minutes. Enjoy.
