Kittencal's Creamy Parmesan Oven-Baked Rice

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

This is creamy and delicious, you may also add in some frozen thawed peas or canned drained sliced mushrooms or fresh sauteed, if you are not a garlic lover then omit the fresh garlic or you may use 1/2 teaspoon or more of garlic powder --- if you love risotto then you will love this rice!
