I have a question about step 1 on the recipe "Italian Rice Pie " from Food Blogga. It says:
"Place the rice and water OR whole milk in medium heavy-bottom saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and cook the rice, uncovered, stirring occasionally for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until the water is absorbed and the rice is sticky. The rice should still be firm as it will finish cooking in the oven. Remove from heat and set aside.
That seems like way to much liquid (4 cups) for only 1/2 cup rice.
