This was a good recipe. I used brown rice instead of white rice, so I cooked this for much longer than the recipe called for. I also just used water instead of the tomato sauce, but I did use tomato paste. This makes a *lot* of rice. It was very good. This dish may not be that unusual-tasting, but it's a solid recipe that I think most people would enjoy. It's isn't that hard either.
