This was a decent recipe, although a bit confusing. Obviously, the 1 ounce of beans and rice mix should be 1 box, and the cook times seemed off. It took about 20 minutes for the rice to finish absorbing the liquid, rather than the specified 6. Some of the flavors were interesting, especially the clam juice/artichoke pairing, but the gravy from the beans and rice mix kind of overwhelmed things.
