      This was tasty, and easy. We had it with cornbread and cole-slaw. I used both bacon and ham, to use up some bits of each that I had on hand. The quick/regular rice distinction is very important!!I almost made it as printed, with 1 cup regular rice until I suddenly realized that it didn't make sense with one cup of water. I cut the rice down to 1/2 cup since I wanted the peas to predominate; but doubling the water would work too.

      Made for Zaar Challenge: Name Game. We really enjoyed this (even though I forgot to put the parsley and thyme in - it was a looonnnggg day at work), especially my DD. She likes anything with beans in it. I didn't look at the ingredients very well when I put this on my shopping list so I didn't have quick cooking rice. I did use regular rice and increased the amount of water to two cups (which was a little much - I think 1 3/4 cups would have been just about right). Anyway, this was a great side dish something different than rice, potatoes or pasta! Thanks for posting this Leeza!

      Very good and easy. I used chicken broth instead of water and found the thyme a bit strong. Next time I will reduce the thyme by half.
