Preheat oven to
325°. Mix rice, water, butter, and salt in a small, heavy pan. Bring to
a boil over medium-high heat, cover, reduce heat to low and cook 12 minutes.
The key is to not overcook the rice. Spread the rice in a 9"X13" glass
pan, add tomatoes, FOX POINT SEASONING, and mozzarella cheese. Stir gently
to combine. Too much stirring causes the rice to get sticky. Sprinkle
parmesan cheese on top and cover loosely with foil. Return to the oven
for 20 minutes, or until cheese has melted and dish is heated through.
The pan of rice will hold well in the oven for quite some time, just turn
the oven down to 200° and crimp the foil cover on tightly.
