I followed the directions exactly other than using chicken broth instead of water (I had some that had to be used)... and was thrilled with the result. I make a lot of "hot dishes" and this one is similar to one my Aunt in Minnesota used to make -- she's gone now and I don't have the recipe -- so this was nostalgic and delicious to me! I like how the rice cooks in the oven and the casserole is rich, creamy with a bit of crunch to boot. I'm looking forward to the left-overs.
