Love this! Even my picky little 3 year old ate it. I added mushrooms and onions at the beginning and used a bit more cheese!

Fantastic! I omitted the chicken and served it with penne pasta instead of rice but the sauce was delicious!

Very Good, My husband loved it so much, he wants it tomorrow night too. I had a lot left over, so I just made some more sauce and added to it. The fresh garlic was such a great taste with the cream. Oh and used used penne pasta instead of rice!

Very tasty dish .I added fresh tortellini at the end as a extra.

This is definitely delicious but it does not need the butter garlic rice. Plain rice or noodles help to bring out the flavor of the dish instead of smothering it.

Interesting recipes. A few comments though, if your going to name a recipe make sure it fits. A true Carbonara is made with eggs and pasta. of which this has none. Not really sure what you could name it though maybe a Primivera? Its the Rice that throws it off.

Great recipe! The family and I scarfed it down next time I am going to make double the sauce that was a big request. Thanks

This was fantasic! My husband is still talking about this recipe and how much he loved it! He even called his mom to tell her how good it was and he usually hates rice but he loved it all.. I added broccoli and I will definitely be making this again! Thank you for sharing this :)

It was good, I used white rice because that's what we had on hand. Next time we might use pasta.

Awesome! Increased cream and parmesan and added mushrooms. Served w/angel hair pasta instead of rice! Family Loved it! Even my 2 picky ones loved it. It's definitely on the me. Thx!

Very easy to make and very delicious!! I didn't have heavy cream on hand so I used light cream. The sauce was still amazing.

Steve, this looks great. Since I'm doing a low carb eating plan these days, I think I'd probably substitute cauliflower "rice" for the real stuff though.

Good quick and easy recipe. I could not buy Uncle Bens Garlic and Butter rice so used Jasmine Rice instead. Also added extra veggies for bulk. Will be making this one again.

Excellent but reAlly heavy and rich. I used linguini instead of rice.

My hubby loved it. May try sun dried tomatoes, mushrooms & broccoli just to add more veggies. May try whole wheat penne pasta to cut down on uncle Ben salty rice. Very tasty. Will make again.

OK If Uncle Ben's Garlic and Butter Rice is an ingredient, then a car's transmission is a raw material. Oh, and just how big is a packet of this stuff if I wanted to assemble the transmission myself? Since Uncle Ben's is not on sale in my location (Europe), how on earth am I to follow this recipe?
