This quick rice dish is a favorite with my family. It's low in fat because it gets it's flavor from herbs, not butter. -Connie Regalado of El Paso, Texas

"My husband and I liked this, but thought that the pepper taste was overwhelming, almost over powering the rosemary taste. I will be cutting back on that next time. Also I didn't have any shredded Parmesan, so I tried Mozzarella. I don't think it gave it much of a taste. Next time I'll stick with either the shredded Parm or grated. Otherwise, a decent side. I'll make this again."

"I did not include the Parmesan cheese when I made it, but it was still delicious! It has a small kick to it from the spices that my husband and I both loved."
