Recipe by Mysterygirl
I saw a recipe similar to this in an Uncle Ben's ad some years ago. I never kept the ad, just started making this recipe. Although the seasoning is different, don't let it scare you. Everyone that I have ever made these for loves them, including my husband who doesn't like rice. Try them once. I make it without the craisins but they were in the original recipe.

I used Rice-A-Roni "rice pilaf" and did not use the craisins. It tasted very good and my husband enjoyed it. I would advise you cook 25-30 minutes and 5-10 minutes once you have the cheese on top. I would make this again.
