Even folks who don't like spinach enjoy this rich, cheesy rice and spinach combination. We prefer it with pork chops, but it goes well with chicken or steak as well.

"Two thumbs up! I used a Uncle Bens pouch that cooks the rice in the microwave in a minute and it's the perfect amount of rice. Really quick recipe."

"Rice in an Italian dish seems a little odd, but this was really good and very quick and easy to make."
