This is another dish my grandma made on Fridays during Lent. She made it at other times too, and it’s definitely Italian comfort food. It can be a main course or a side dish. Also, it can be made with macaroni/pasta or rice.
Rice with eggs and cheese
1 cup rice, uncooked (I like Carolina rice.)
3 tablespoons butter
1/3 cup grated romano cheese (My family always uses Locatelli.)
salt and pepper to taste
Cook the rice according to package instructions. When cooked, add other ingredients and mix thoroughly. Serves 2. If you want to make this with macaroni/pasta, cook pasta according to package instructions and drain. Put back in pot or in a bowl and add ingredients. Mix thoroughly and serve.
