  • I used brown rice and it took a long time to cook. Also, we are up in the mountains so it takes longer anyway. - 2/2/10

  • This was good! I didn't use any wine, but it turned out well. My husband is always wary of my "healthy" recipes, but he really liked this one. Pretty easy to make. - 1/4/10
