    Recipe Tips

    To add more flavor to this, or any, dish, cook the rice in chicken, beef or vegetable broth instead of water. Add some herbs, such as oregano, basil or thyme, to the cooking liquid for even more flavor. 

    If you don’t have any Parmesan on hand, try topping this dish with a different type of cheese. Try goat cheese or blue cheese for a completely different taste.
