Fam and I loved this. Had a creamy, risotto-like texture. Made no changes, perfect as is. Thanks for sharing.

Made this for dinner tonight and it was awesome. But next time, I think I will use low sodium broth...a little too salty for me. I will try different veggies, maybe like spinach and broccoli....
