Rated 5 out of 5 by from Delicious! This was very easy to make and tasted fantastic, especially with the garlic bread with rustic herb seasoning on it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Delicious! The only reason I'm giving less than a 5 is because 3 cups of rice is too much. My casserole dish is a bit small, but it fit perfectly.
