This is delicious! But I

This is delicious! But I like to add some chopped sweet onions and a bit of broken up vermicelli to saute in a bit less butter prior to adding the rice (I use half unsalted and half salted butter). I use 1 clove of garlic. It's a great recipe for company since you can get the casserole ready, then pop it in the oven when your guests arrive. We love it.
