Parmesan Peas ’n’ Rice are a wonderful complement for any meal. My husband, John, likes rice but isn’t crazy about peas, and I’m just the opposite. It's a great compromise!

"I served this with sweet and sour pork chops, and it was an excellent side dish. The flavor is good, without overpowering the main dish. I used whole grain brown rice, which worked just fine. It doesn't get as fluffy, so I just poured off the remaining broth when it was done."

"this is really good. I substituted with brown rice, and doubled the recipe. My husband is a hearty eater. I used a whole bunch (one bundle) of green onion. 1 can of broth and enough water to make 2 1/2 c water for the brown rice (cooks longer). I used fresh grated cheese in a package. (not the canned kind)"
