My husband loved this; he had brought home some fresh local shrimp and wanted a red rice & shrimp bake~well I used your recipe for the rice and added the raw, cleaned shrimp and layered an 8oz package of swiss cheese to the mixture. I covered it with foil for the same amount of time and he could not believe how delicious it was! Thank you, for such a great recipe!
I had to do a little tweaking to suit limited cooking facilities, but this was very tasty anyway. Nice, basic, highly adaptable recipe for a flavorful side dish that I think would go well with many, many main dishes. I made it with Milanesa - Cuban Chicken Fried Steak for a Latin dinner.
DH says 5 star!! he loved it and so did I, lovely combination f flavours, I happened to have 3 colours of peppers so used a bit of all of them and used left over brown rice I had alredy cooked. The only different thing I did was to cut back the butter, used about a tablespoon of butter and a table spoon of olive oil and sprayed the casserole with veggie spray. it turned out delicious served with our pork tenderloin. thanks for posting I will be making it again.
