Loved the flavors and how quick this came together. After adding 1 1/2 cups of rice, I thought it was a bit soupy, so I added about another cup of rice. It made enough for 4.

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.
