Made this for Christmas brunch and the family thought it was pretty good (but no raves). As the other commenter mentioned, it could probably use a little more flavor--next time I'll double the basil. I'll also try carmelizing the onions and mushrooms before cooking the rice. Since the rice is pre-cooked, I'm going to try it with brown rice next time. So, in summary, it's a pretty good dish that I would serve again, but there's definitely some experimental possibilities... ooh what about substituting some pepperjack cheese for the cheddar, some chili powder for the basil, and throw in a can of green chiles...
