      Excellent rice dish. Very flavourful. So easy to make. I used spaghettini because I didn't have any vermicelli. Will definitely make this again!

      Excellent recipe. So simple. I started making it in 2007 and last night I made it for Thanksgiving. Everyone loved it. Makes a nice amount. Only improvement IMO, a little salt. Thank you.
