    Would you rather (that) I cooked dinner tonight?

    Hello. My friend wrote the below sentence.
    Would you rather (that) I cooked dinner tonight?
    I am wondering whether the clause following would rather is that-clause.

    ‘Do you mind if I smoke?’ ‘Well, I'd rather you didn't.’ (OALD)

    It is a "that" clause, but "that" can be omitted.
