    jkworth's Note:

    This is a recipe that I got from a vegetarian cookbook and made a few modifications to. We have fallen for this dish and now make it a few times a month. My two year old also loves it. We tried it out on some non-vegetarians and they all loved it.

      So delicious! I halved the butter and oil, and I still adore this dish.

      Made this last night. I added a roasted red pepper and zucchini. I also used fresh oregano. It was very yummy and will now be added to our dinnier list as it was easy to make and very easy to alter.

      Quick, easy and so yummy. I cooked the rice in chicken broth to add more flavor. Of course, this renders the dish no longer vegetarian but does add a wonderful touch to the dish.
