    Tastes really good! We used regular brown rice so it took longer to cook, but it was fairly easy to make and the whole family loved it!

    Delicious , easy and healthy. I substituted orzo for the rice so had to cook it slightly longer. I didn't have stewed tomatoes so used diced and I served the green beans on the side. Made a Greek salad from elsewhere on this site . The whole thing was delicious. A definite keeper!

    Made this last night. I decreased the rice to 1 1/3 cup and we used crushed tomatoes, but it was great and we're going to make it again.

    This was really easy and delicious . The only thing I changed was I used a can of chicken broth instead of the water. I will definitely make this again
