    This recipe was easy and my entire family loved it! I used portobello, shiitake and cremini mushrooms and I also used the refrigerated Kraft parm cheese. It is a very warm and comforting type of dish - great served with roast chicken!

    I really like this pilaf. Made some changes to the recipe. I used salt free vegetable broth, so I could control the sodium, dried parsley instead of fresh (none on hand), and 2 tablespoons of light marble cheese. I added 1 teaspoon of red chili powder when the dressing was heating up.. and 1/4 cup of white wine after the quinoa was cooking. It has a kick now and is delicious!
