I have had some readers have issues with their rice not cooked completely. I have made this many times with the times listed in this recipe. I have adjusted the uncooked time in the recipe for an additional 5 minutes. 
One tip that will help if to make sure you are not opening and closing the oven beyond uncovering the casserole. This will impact your oven temperature. 
Also, make sure to test you oven to make sure it reaches the proper temperature. It is not uncommon for an oven to run cold or hot.
