I don't usually make instant rice dishes but I needed something quick & easy. It worked well & was tasty but I agree that it was abit soupy for me also. I threw in more rice but I'll cut the broth next time. I whipped this up so quick that I forgot to add the lemon peel & parmesan, maybe next time. Nice twist with the italian dressing & cream cheese, thanks for sharing.
