    Very Good
    I make something like this and turn it into a meal with chunks of chicken. I like the idea of adding veggies too! - 7/1/10

    Nice and simple rice pilaf. I substituted extra virgin olive oil for the butter and would love to try adding some carrots and bell peppers next time to throw in some veggies. - 12/8/08
