    I've made this twice. The first time I added the cream at the end...there was a really weird texture. This time I added the cream after the last of the broth was absorbed, so it simmered into the rice as well. Same great taste without the odd texture. - 8/20/09

    I realized I didn't have Parmesan cheese, so I used part skim Mozzarella. It was delicious! We all enjoyed it. The only problem I encountered making this (and it was a small one) is that the instructions don't tell you what to do with the heavy cream. I added it at the end. Could add veggies. - 4/2/09
