Yuuuummmmy! Parmesan, butter and rice... what a wonderful combination. This was so easy and got thumbs up from everyone here. I didn't have any parsley but the guys never missed it. This will definitley be a side dish we'll have often. Thanks, MizzNezz!

Great rice, only thing I would change would be decrease the amt. of butter, we thought it was on the greasy side. Served this with recipe#85259 and recipe#78938
