    Pagan's Note:

    This is the perfect side dish for roast chicken, shrimp scampi, or a nice roast (it works so well with pork AND beef!). If used with beef, substitute the chicken broth/bulion cubes for beef flavored ones, and pork bulion for pork. Also, if you don't have the 16-oz can of chicken broth on hand, you can substitute or 2 cups hot water with 6 (flavored to match the meat you're serving) bulion cubes melted within.

      This recipe was great! The rice had good flavor and the rosemary made the rice soo fragrant that i couldn't wait for it to finish cooking. The only problem I had was the rice sticking to the bottom, but my mother took care of that. I also left out the gumbo file because i couldn't get to the store but it still turned out magnificent!

      This is truly fantastic and is going in my cookbook of classics (when I create it...). I'm sure I don't need to tell everyone how wonderful the garlic and rosemary smelled sauteing together ;o), it's one of those fabulously aromatic dishes that drive you nuts with anticipation. The cooking technique is a bit different than what I'm used to, but the rice came out perfectly. And FD, don't forget to edit this recipe to include the adding of the gumbo file in the instructions... it's not there and I almost didn't add it and that would have been a shame coming from a good part-Cajun girl! Wonderful recipe, thank you so much!
