This was a good recipe. I added a splash of white wine and some salt and pepper and enjoyed! Arugula > spinach

This recipe was great! It's fairly light and the parmesan/basil at the very end give it the perfect touch of silkiness and flavor. However, our family likes spicy (as in herbs & spices) food so I modified it by adding a little more flavor. Nothing spectacular, just garlic pepper, ground coriander, paprika, oregano leaves and garlic pepper. It is definitely best served right out of the pan while it's still hot and fresh. Once it cooled, the rice was more dense and clumpy than I prefer.
