Very very tasty, with the addition of 1/4 cup parmesan in the sauce plus an add'l 1/4 cup more (half-cup total) sprinkled on top. Leave the rice slightly undercooked so it doesn't get mushy after another 25 mins in the oven. I placed the casserole under the broiler for the last 5 mins.

It was a little salty, when I make it again I'll eliminate the salt since the broth and Parmesan cheese have plenty. I also think it would be much better with mushrooms and a little bit of fresh oregano. Overall, it was an easy way to use up some of the leftovers which we usually end up not knowing what to do with.
