      We liked this, but found it to be a bit salty for our tastes. Next time I will add less olives and half the artichokes, and maybe cut back on the cheese too. I should have added more liquid, too, because some of the rice didn't cook all the way through -- but that could be because the cooking vessel wasn't sealed tightly enough. (I used an enameled cast iron dutch oven and its cover instead of two layers of foil.) Other than being a bit salty, the flavors were wonderful and meld well together. Made for ZWT4.

      I made this a couple of weeks ago when it was originally posted and thought it was so delicious that I wanted to rate it immediately. However, we were all asked to wait so I was happy to see it here today. This is wonderful but the lime is the key ingredient. I followed the recipe exactly and had no problem whatsover with it. However, I had leftovers for the next day and it lost a lot of its character and wasn't half as delicious. I'll just have to eat the whole thing next time. Thank you.

      5 stars, more if I could give it. I omitted mushrooms (don't eat them), used less parsley and used bottled key lime juice and no zest. Funny, it did not smell too well while baking but it sure tasted great! Yummy! Spinach wilted and cooked just fine.
