Old Fashioned Rice Pudding

2 cups of cooked white rice 
2 cups milk
3 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon of sugar
1/8 teaspoon of salt
1 teaspoons vanilla extract

In a large saucepan, combine the rice, milk, sugar and salt.  Cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 20 minutes or until thickened, stirring often.  Remove from the heat; stir in vanilla.  Spoon into serving dishes.  Serve warm; top with whipped cream if desired.  

NOTES:  We make this for food prep and the students are almost always skeptical at first, but then give it highest marks in the end of the year evaluation.

It's a fantastic comfort food that's easy and cheap to make.
