Who doesn’t love a nice Italian pesto sauce in their rice? Who never tried it, wouldn’t believe how tasty this meal is. It can be made within 25 minutes, and the taste is super amazing! The freshness from the basil, the richness from the parmesan cheese, and the creaminess from the rice – just match made in heaven.
