It takes a little more time to make than one of those flavored rice packets from the store. But the flavor is much, much better.

I buy a piece of Parmesan cheese and grate it with a Microplane Grater. I love how finely it grates things, plus it is super sharp making it easy to quickly grate a lot of cheese.
