  • Not recommended

    Too much tomato sauce! The recipe also needed to clarify that the rice has to be cooked before adding it to the rest of the recipe. I won’t be making this again.

  • Recommended

    this is a great dish, but i think the recipe calls for too much tomato sauce. it says 16oz and i put exactly that but it doesnt look like the one in the picture. the second thing is the recipe wasnt specific on what kind of onion to use so i went off of the picture and seen green onions in the dish.
