    My husband loved this rice dish. I halved the amount of butter and sprinkled the rice with freshly shredded parmesan cheese.

    Even the skeptics loved this rice! Easy to make and very delicious. I'm a big fan of garlic so next time I am going to add some garlic with the butter for an extra flavorful treat.
