Altered ingredient amounts.Delicious! I would recommend, however, doubling the rice and using a larger variety of vegetables in place of some of the courgette. I did so and it was magnificent. :-)-24 Jul 2008
Absolutely yummy! I too doubled the rice. I also used a tin of tomatoes. I took the cover off for the last five minutes of cooking so it would thicken. Excellent-29 Jun 2011
