I didnt use the crock pot. Instead I used a skillet. I used a whole onion (purple, but yellow would do) and a few shitaki mushrooms. I fried the garlic, onion, and mushrooms in a little grape seed oil (better for you than olive oil, check it out) until softened, dumped in the rice and covered with chicken broth. Didnt have Italian seasoning so I substituted with oregano, rosemary, and a little parsley and ceyenne pepper. When most of the liquid was out of the pan, I stired in the peas, just to warm them up. Instead of parmesan cheese I grated asiago over top. I will make it this way again.
