Spinach and Rice Alfredo

Even folks who don't like spinach enjoy this rich, cheesy rice and spinach combination. We prefer it with pork chops, but it goes well with chicken or steak as well.

    Loved the flavors and how quick this came together. After adding 1 1/2 cups of rice, I thought it was a bit soupy, so I added about another cup of rice. It made enough for 4.

    Two thumbs up! I used a Uncle Bens pouch that cooks the rice in the microwave in a minute and it's the perfect amount of rice. Really quick recipe.

    Rice in an Italian dish seems a little odd, but this was really good and very quick and easy to make.
