This has quickly become a must for me at least once every couple of weeks. It is so delicious that I find myself wanting it very often! I love the spinach in with the rice. It makes me feel like I am eating healthy! I used reduced fat Parmesan cheese, brown rice and low sodium chicken broth to shave calories, and lower sodium and fat. A real must try now kind of recipe!

Another great rice recipe right here! It tasted so good with fresh spinach and I added in some mushrooms. We loved it!

I sprinkled Parmesan and Asiago cheese over it before serving. It kind of melted in and made it taste great. We love this and I will experiment using different greens and other spices. Brown rice works well for this. I made it to go with baked talipia and had butternut squash too. A really great meal!

FANTASTIC rice recipe! Flavorful and cheesy. Great side dish for fish. I used extra-long grain white rice and water with chicken bouillon. I subbed olive oil for the butter and kale for the spinach. This one's a keeper. Made for the Billboard recipe tag game.

We eat rice all the time and I loved that this was just a bit different than usual and really good. It was great with our stuffed pork chops.
