Yummy! I saw this and made it as you said with only a few exceptions. I used a rice cooker so the whole dish took 45 min. to make, and I didn’t use “fresh” oregano or parsley... sorry! But I pretty much stayed to the recipe and it was wonderful! My husband tried it with me, and he’s not the most open person to new foods, and he loved it! The olives were a great touch! I agree that rice dishes can get to be boring but put this was wonderful! I think I’ve found a new home menu item. Thanks Voodoo!
