I'm one for trying a new recipe as written and then making changes...however, this one I went with the cream of mushroom soup, added some white wine, crushed garlic and replaced the minute rice with basmati rice since minute rice is processed. I gave it 12 minutes in the PC because of the rice and let it release naturally. WOW, this was really, really good! I'm going to double it next time. =0)

Not so good. Once I tasted them, I started adding stuff to the sauce to give it more flavor. We ate them but definitely not our favorite. I remember liking these when cooked in the oven. I will look for that recipe. I will keep experimenting bcause I love my pressure cooker. I think I will decrease the water next time.
