I really love this meal.  It is so simple and yet so flavorful.

It goes together so quickly and bakes in a mere 20 minutes.  It is great for those nights you need something easy and flavorful to feed your family when you have limited time.

I used this garlic ‘n herb seasoning from my local Meijer store, but there are other brands out there which will work as well.

It adds a nice taste that compliments the natural flavor of the vegetables.  

I have been known to hide the leftovers so I can have them all to myself for lunch the next day.

My son requests this meal when he comes home to visit.  

Our whole family is happy to see this meal on the dinner table.

I like to bake the rice if I am serving it.

This method from 101cookingfortwo.com is easy and the rice turns out perfectly every time for me.

The size of baking dish you use will depend on how much rice you are making.  I can fit 3 cups of dry rice in a 9″x13″ baking dish.  If I’m cooking for two, I make 1 cup of dry rice in a smaller oven safe dish.
