    This was a wonderful way to change up just plain rice. My whole family loved it. Will definately make this again.

    Simmered Italian Rice

    I made this exactly as on the recipe the other day and loved it. Tonight I doubled the recipe and added some sauteed ground beef (cooked with salt, pepper, and garlic powder), used 1/2 the amount of Parmesan and added some grated Italian-blend cheese. My family loved it and I plan to make it often!
