We used this as a side dish and we liked the flavors. I was out of black olives so I omitted them. I would suggest though browning the onions a bit before adding the rice. The onions were not quite done enough by the time the rice had browned. Add some garlic and double the cheese and this would be a 5 star recipe.
This was very good, i used it as a side dish. I substitued olive oil to brown the rice and onions and reduced fat parmesan to reduce fat and calories. It was very good, very creamy and satisfying without being awful for you! Next time i might add some garlic to give it some more flavor.
