This rice dish has a delicious taste and healthy ingredients. I also had the problem that my rice was not quite cooked - a little more water and possibly using grated cheddar instead of sliced American would help this. All in all a tasty side that has the added bonus of being made all in one dish! Thanks for posting!

This dish is very tasty. But my rice wasn't all cooked. And I used white long grain rice. Maybe a little bit more water would have been better. I used cheddar cheese, grated. Thanks Gatorbek :) Made for 123 hit wonders.

This was excellent. I can't wait to use fresh garden tomatoes in this. I used brown rice, so I added an extra 1/4 c of water and cooked about 1 hr. I used 2% shredded cheddar and had to add a yellow squash in the mix. So tasty.
