    This is a simple but tasty side dish. It would go well with almost any main dish.

    This was delicious, simple and quick. I served it with the Quick Cordon Bleu on the same page.

    I love this recipe. It is fast, easy and tasty. Even my husband, who doesn't usually care for rice, likes it.
