    hisfavoritemavis's Note:

    This is a tasty, cheesy way to serve rice. It's best in the summer, served with fresh tomatoes and a crusty baguette.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Bring the rice to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 45 minutes.
    2. 2
      Blend the other ingredients in a food processor to make a pesto sauce.
    3. 3
      Add to the rice.
    4. 4
      Serve with lots of fresh tomatoes to make up for the "death by cheese and olive oil" sensation. If it needs made up for, that is. I kind of like it.

      Too much basil and the rice was gummy. Possibly too much cheese. I won't make it again

      I love making this rice dish. Although I substituted fresh cilantro for the fresh basil and OH LA LA!! Adds a wonderful twist on a pesto. I love the flavor of cilantro, and this rice makes an excellent addition with any mexican/spanish dish!
