  1. I love this recipe! Found it in a magazine, and was happy to see it here. I always season the fish with lemon pepper and italian seasoning, and add extra italian dressing to the rice and over the fish. A great fast dinner that tastes amazing!
  2. I made this for the Healthy Choices ABC game. I'm pretty happy with the results. I subbed brown rice, which was very good. I also used fat-free Italian dressing, which adds great flavor. I did add a little extra water for the rice, and left the tomatoes undrained. Next time, I will drain and rinse the tomatoes, because I don't love the juice. I think it tastes overpowering. I also halved the amount of cheese, and it was great! Thanks for such a good recipe, I will definitely make it again. YUM!


Update Nov 2009 - I live in Northwestern Ontario with the cold and the bugs. A baby born in each of my decade 20's 30's 40's!!! plus 2 grandsons now. I love to cook and hardly ever repeat a recipe. I never really had a fav cookbook but I now have a favorite recipe site that I am totally addicted to-RECIPEZAAR!!! I still email recipes to my own kids. My pet peeve is those folks who turn their noses up at a dish even before they try it. My family have sat at the table with a pig tail or a chicken foot on their plate just becuz I found a recipe - HAHAHa - cooking should be fun and very once in a while the dogs get a treat! I also love watching decorating shows and my husband keeps promising to put wheels on the furniture to make room arrangments easier! We don't hobby farm anymore on our 8 acres and the large veg garden has been made over - half rock garden and other half with 12 new raised cedar beds because I am getting old and the knees don't work so well. It is fabulous and will post a new cover pic altho I love my Inukshuks!! I LOVE snowshoeing and am blessed to be able to walk out my back door and enjoy.
