    PaulaG's Note:

    I really liked this idea. A perfect gift in jar for people who aren't to fond of sweets and something different from the typical soup mix. The recipe comes from Holiday Gifts from A Jar.

      This is SO good! My whole family loved this recipe!! Altho' to be honest, I used jasmine rice, canned mushrooms (drained), oily sun-dried tomatoes (and not as much as called for), onions --instead of chives (which are buried under a foot of snow), no saffron, and cashews for pine-nuts. So, I didn't "quite" follow the recipe word-for-word, but we certainly aren't complaining....this was just TOO GOOD! Oh, and I used fontinella cheese for the parmesan (it's a hard cheese, too). I halved the recipe since I didn't have an army to feed, and it was just right for the five of us, with a bit leftover which was even BETTER the second time around. Those cashews were delightful!!! Definitely a keeper going into the binder on my shelf! *Zaar Tag, January 2008*
